Level 1 Award in Health and Social Care

Level 1 Award in Health and Social Care

The need for adult social care continues to rise at a time when the system supporting that care is rapidly and significantly changing. With around 1.5 million people working in adult social care in England, care workers need up-to-date support and guidance to provide adequate person-centred care.

We have two options for you to gain this qualification, this model allows you to do self-study if you prefer rather than our other delivery in an online classroom group.

This online course covers:

  • Introduction to the adult social care sector
  • Values and principles of adult social care
  • Skills and attitudes needed to work in adult social care
  • Communication in adult social care
  • Roles and responsibilities of the adult social care worker

During your online learning course with LLC, you will be allocated a personal tutor who will support you every step of the way. In addition, you will have access to additional support when you need it to make sure you can be successful with your studies. Our online learning materials are high quality, interactive and accessible in different formats to ensure you will be successful with whatever you choose to study.


LLC Online Learning is a way of accessing qualifications and courses, fully supported by a personal tutor but without attending lessons in a classroom setting. This means you can complete your studies in the comfort of your own home, giving you the opportunity to recap on your studies as often as you need to.
