People in the UK now have an average life expectancy of 72 years. The population aged 65 years and over is growing faster that the working age population aged 16 to 64 years; but not everyone remains healthy throughout their longer lives.

This nationally recognised qualification is suitable for a wide range of learners who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of caring for older people. It may be useful as an introduction for those who wish to pursue a career in working in elderly care settings, and those wishing to expand on their existing knowledge.

This course is delivered online. Studying via distance learning means you can choose when and where you study. All of our award-winning, online learning resources are of the highest quality and are designed to be engaging and interactive to keep you focused on your learning at all times.
