Although individuals with learning disabilities and their families continue to face many challenges, most commentators would agree that we are living in more enlightened and optimistic times in terms of our approach to learning disability support. Individuals with learning disabilities are now being offered more personalised services with a greater emphasis on empowerment, active participation and quality of life.
This qualification is aimed at learners who work with, or would like to work with, individuals with learning disabilities. Although it will be particularly useful to those working in health and social care, it will also be of interest to those who work in education or housing support roles.
This fully funded open learning course is FREE to all Scottish residents.
