A CQC Mandatory Course:

With the introduction of the Health and Care Act 2022, from the 1st of July 2022, educating social care workers on providing better social care outcomes for people with autism and learning disabilities has become mandatory for those who work with people diagnosed with the condition.

The CQC will be checking to see whether social care providers have carried out this training and assessed the competencies of their staff following this.


Details about the course:

A learning disability is a life-long reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example, household tasks, socialising or managing money. People with a learning disability tend to take longer to learn and may need support to develop new skills, understand complex information and interact with other people.

There are approximately 1.5 million people across the UK that have a learning disability and it is likely that a social care worker will have to work with a person with a learning disability.

It's estimated that by 2030, there will be a 30% increase in adults with learning disabilities aged 50+ using social care services.

Our brand-new course will cover this training in detail and will equip your staff with the tools they need to provide an excellent quality of care on a daily basis.


By the end of the course, learners should understand:

  • The causes of learning disabilities

  • Key pieces of legislation relating to learning disabilities

  • Barriers facing people with learning disabilities

  • How to improve communication

  • How to promote positive care practices
