ThirdForce solution for Health and Social Care NVQ Level 2

ThirdForce has launched a complete solution to the delivery of the Health and Social Care NVQ Level 2 qualification for assistants and support workers in multiple-site residential and domiciliary care.

ThirdForce’s solution has been developed in collaboration with national care providers and awarding bodies and built on their healthcare compliance e-leaming suite which includes Common Induction Standards and Health and Food Safety. The solution, Skills Suite for NVQ2, consists of a suite of e-learning modules together with an e-porttolio specifically designed for multiple site operators. It provides learning to employees and considerable administrative benefits to employers.

For the carer, the learning is intuitive and user friendly with clear vocabulary, narration and engaging imagery. For the care provider, administration is simplified by linking assessment and learning in one paperless solution. The eportfolio automatically populates learners’ records and tracks their progress remotely with automated reports, while the e-leaming content delivers the qualification targets set out In the National Minimum Standards and increases pass rates by improving learner retention.

Ongoing costs for employers are significantly reduced by restricting paper chains and by reducing the number of unproductive assessor visits.

Richard Taylor, ThirdForce’s director of business development, said: “Health and Social Care NVQ Level 2 is now a mandatory qualification for care workers. By developing the staff’s confidence and competence, our new package helps employers to retain their people and provide consistently high standards and continuity of care.”
