Level 3 Diploma in Adult Care
Having staff trained to the Level 3 Diploma in Adult Care helps meet CQC staff training requirements whilst bringing longer-term benefits to your care home.By supporting your staff with Level 3 training, you are putting in place the foundations needed for them to progress to the Level 5 Diploma - ensuring your care home has vital managerial cover.
How much does it cost?
As a Government-approved training center, Access Training has been awarded funding to deliver the new 'free courses for jobs'. They recognise that there is a worrying shortage of trained staff in the care sector so have taken the decision to allocate their funding specifically in this area. It means the training can be delivered at no cost to you.
Staff memebers that are 19 or over and do not already have a level 3 qualification
Staff memebers who already have a level 3 qualification or higher but earn below the National Living Wage annually (£18,525 from April 2022).
The training covers the following mandatory units:
