Level 2 Certificate
The purpose of this qualification is to increase learners’ awareness and understanding of falls and their prevention.
Fully-funded via the UK Government in the form of the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
The objective of the qualification is to allow learners to gain knowledge and understanding of:
Falls are the most frequent and serious type of accident in people aged 65 and over, with 10,000 falls happening each day. Falls often affect a person physically and mentally – they can result in fractures and broken bones, but also in a lack of confidence and isolation.
You will learn about the risk factors and causes of falls, as well as how to prevent falls and how to manage them when they happen.
