The programme is aimed at those in roles supporting adults in roles that exercise autonomy and judgement within limited parameters, such as Senior/Social Care Workers, Senior Support Workers and Reablement Officers.

An assessor will visit the candidate at their workplace once a month for a minimum of 2 hours.  Observations will be agreed between the learner and assessor and it is the responsibility of the learner to liaise with their employer for this to take place within the workplace. In addition to this, underpinning knowledge of the units will need to be provided by the learner.  This can take the form of written questions, completing workbooks or reflective accounts. Learners will be expected to spend at least 6 hours per week completing work before the next meeting with their assessor.

The evidence can be from observations, professional discussions, product evidence, case studies and witness statements.
