This course is aimed at health care assistants who work in maternity and paediatric areas in health care settings.
You need to be working in an appropriate setting - either a maternity or paediatric area.
You will complete the Level 3 Diploma with a specialist Maternity and Paediatric pathway.
You will attend fortnightly class sessions with the tutor to fulfil the knowledge evidence requirements of the course. You will be allocated an assessor who will visit you in the workplace to action plan your progress, observe your practice and assess your portfolio of work.
You could consider an Access to Health Care programme or the Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care.
You can advance to senior health care assistant roles.
