COURSE OVERVIEW A distance learning course is the ideal way to gain a Level 2 qualification in Diabetes in Children and Young People. Whether you're looking to go on to further education, improve your job prospects or expand your knowledge, distance learning Level 2 Diabetes in Children and Young People is a flexible and convenient course, which allows you to comprehensively prepare for a exam or career through home study. What's more, because the distance learning Level 2 Diabetes in Children and Young People course is a fully comprehensive course, no prior knowledge is required. This distance learning Diabetes in Children and Young People programme has been written for people who are involved in the care sector and is aimed to give all staff, supervisors and managers the essential knowledge needed to offer the very best professional approach to the management of diabetes. Diabetes is a serious health condition where the amount of blood glucose in the body is much higher than its requirements. Consequently, the body cannot use it as efficiently as it should do. This is due to the pancreas - a small organ that is situated behind the stomach, either not producing any insulin or it doesn’t produce enough insulin - this all depends on the type of diabetes a person has. Fundamentally, there are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. It is a common degenerative health problem for people all over the world, both male and female. Although diabetic symptoms and the conditions that are associated with diabetes can be treated to a certain extent, unfortunately there is as yet no known cure. It is crucial to spot the symptoms of diabetes sooner rather than later. This is to prevent any of the many serious complications associated with the condition developing, or progressing further, in service users that already have some of the serious problems linked to diabetes.

Course Qualifications Qualification : Diabetes in Children and Young People Level 2 At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course). The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that NCC has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner. The course itself has been designed by NCC to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process. ABC Awards is a leading national Awarding Organisation, regulated by Ofqual, and the Welsh Government.
