Introductory training in Independent Advocacy, ideal for support workers, social workers and health/social care professionals
The Carers Federation is an approved centre with City & Guilds and a leading training provider of Level 2 and 3 qualifications in Independent Advocacy.
Generally speaking, if you are not employed as an advocate then the Level 2 Award in Independent Advocacy is usually the best place to start. It is ideal for those just starting in an advocacy role or if you are considering advocacy as a career. It is also popular with those who may use advocacy as part of their wider role such as support workers, social workers, health and social care professionals and other related professions, and is a good way in to gaining employment or volunteering work with an advocacy or supporting organisation.
The qualification is offered through an online learning environment, where individuals can work through modules at their own pace. Remote support is available via email or telephone. The course usually takes about 15 to 20 hours to complete, depending on experience.
A 30 per cent discount is available for members of the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) Network.
The Carers Federation also run a wide range of other training courses on the topics of mentoring and safeguarding etc.
