Are you a carer, or do you employ care staff who undertake delegated tasks?

Care College has developed a range of RQF Awards to ensure you are fully prepared with the knowledge and skills needed to undertake delegated tasks safely – all delivered by nurses.

These qualifications require self-directed work, completion of a workbook, assessment in practice, and attendance at a classroom session.

All learners are provided with a designated mentor and receive a qualification, competency assessment and RQF Certificate upon completion.

All qualifications cost £250, and learners have eight weeks to complete them.

These are the most popular courses required for carers who are undertaking delegated tasks.

Delegated tasks are procedures that may be delegated to sufficiently trained experienced health care workers by
registrants/ nurses.

All of these clinical courses are delivered by our registered nurse trainers who have years of experience in clinical practice spanning acute, community and primary care.

For these courses, there is additional portfolio work to complete. You will have a designated assessor who will guide and support you throughout.
