Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Behaviour that Challenges

Would any of your learners benefit from completing some caring training courses? For carers, or individuals looking to become carers, training courses are second only to on-the-job training in terms of gaining the skills needed to be a competent carer.

This qualification aims to develop your learners’ knowledge of and skills in handling behaviour that challenges. This includes looking at the difference between conflict and behaviour that challenges and aggression versus assertive behaviour. Your learners will look at the impact and possible causes of this behaviour and pro-active strategies they can use to support positive behaviour.

Our training courses for carers are ideal for your learners who are looking to pursue careers in the health and social care sector, or for those learners who are already acting as carers, either professionally or personally.
