About the course
Our courses enable you to boost your career with a nationally recognised qualification even if you don’t have the time to attend training sessions. You will work your way through the qualification submitting work every 2 weeks, achieving within approximately three months.
The Level 2 Understanding Working with People with Mental Health Needs qualification aims to raise awareness of the role of the mental health worker and the process and approaches involved in the care and support of those who experience mental ill-health.
This course is ideal if you are local to Swindon, new or returning to learning and is offered via a workbook option with one-to-one support from a tutor.

- Distance Learning isn’t for everyone. If at your enrolment we feel that this mode of study may not be quite right for you, we will help you to find the one that is.
