New! Distance Learning: Level 2 Award Independent Advocacy

We are delighted to launch our new Independent Advocacy Level 2 Award Distance Learning Pack and accompanying Workbook.

The distance learning pack is ideal for anyone wanting to understand the basic principles of independent advocacy and its role. For example, you may be interested in becoming a volunteer advocate, you currently work alongside or use advocacy services, or if it is a part of your wider current role, for example, as a support worker, health and social care professional or social worker; and you want to learn and understand more.

It is in an easy to follow format, including activities, scenarios and handouts, to help consolidate your knowledge and understanding whilst taking you through the learning outcomes of the award, with the support of your personally allocated assessor.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the principles of Independent Advocacy
  • Understand the role of the Independent Advocate
  • Understand communication methods used in Independent Advocacy
  • Understand equality, diversity and inclusion

Workbook Assessment:

We have developed a workbook for you to complete once you have worked through the distance learning materials, which you need to submit for formal assessment to your assessor. On its successful completion, you will have achieved your Level 2 Award in Independent Advocacy qualification and receive your City & Guilds accredited qualification and certificate.

We offer the assessment package as a self-directed approach to gaining the qualification, with individual one to one support and signposting from an ARC assessor, thus the learner sets the pace of the qualification. This could be particularly useful if you are currently working from home, or have additional time to study.
