There will be no scheduled lessons on Wednesday 29th November for full-time 16-18 year old students due to a staff CPD day. A Level students will be in college as normal.
This qualification enables learners to develop knowledge and understanding of caring for individuals with dementia. Successful completion of the units will allow learners to develop in-depth knowledge and understanding of dementia and its effects.
The objectives of this qualification are to enable learners to understand:
- types of dementia and the importance of early diagnosis
- person-centred approaches in dementia care
- the role of communication, interaction and inclusion in dementia care and support
- the use of medication to support individuals with dementia.
We understand students may require a little extra help during their studies, which is why our learning support team are on hand to help learners with a learning difficulty or support need to achieve their full potential.
Whatever your age or level of study, we offer a comprehensive support service and bursary scheme to help you through your studies. From childcare assistance to travel packages, we pride ourselves on giving expert advice and support.
We are situated in a fantastic location, just a stone's throw from Middlesbrough town centre. As well as being a matter of minutes from both the train and bus stations, eligible students can also benefit from free travel.
