About this Qualification

The IQ Level 3 Certificate in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care is a qualification aimed at learners who work or intend to work in the adult social care sector. It provides learners with formal recognition of their knowledge and understanding of adult social care. As a knowledge-based qualification, it is not a requirement that learners are in work. In the mandatory units, all learners will cover duty of care, diversity, equality and inclusion, communication, person-centred approaches, personal development, health and safety, safeguarding and protection, information handling and the role of the social care worker. The qualification is generic in nature and relevant to a wide-range of health and social care settings. Objectives of the qualification include: preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding, meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.

This qualification forms the knowledge component of the Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care.
