The course follows a logical and familiar structure; very similar to the way we live our lives. Once the (essential) background material, largely concerning applicable legislation and our wonderful National Health Service, has been clearly laid out, it begins in earnest with a thorough examination of child development. You are then given an insight into many of the common health issues that affect most of us throughout our lives, including common diseases and illnesses like cancer. Subsequent units help you understand the effects of drugs and alcohol on the body, and their impact on society. The course also deals with the mental health issues linked to all of these.
Within the "health" section, we also explore the symptoms and treatment of various conditions, the importance of nutrition (prevention rather than cure!), and the physical and emotional effects of eating disorders.
Legislation affects us all in every part of our lives, and the caring professions have their own rules, regulations and legal compliance requirements to deal with. A helpful section clearly explains the relevant legislation affecting those working in the health and social care fields, and how those laws influence policy and practice within the sector.
The section dealing with our National Health Service (NHS) is one of the most interesting modules for many students, and it is squarely placed right at the beginning of the course. Love it or loathe it, the NHS is at the core of care delivery in the UK, but very few people know very much about its history or the way it works. This module takes a look at the inside workings of the NHS, how it has evolved and grown since its creation, some of its most significant developments and successes, and its operational strategy.
The course deals in some depth with the role of the childcare and education sectors, and the control, coordination and administration operations delivered by OFSTED in its role as the regulator. Finally you are given a grounding in the sensitive issues surrounding abuse, including domestic violence, child and elder abuse, and how to ensure both you and those in your care stay safe at all times.

The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers breaks up and interrupts the learning process. But with My Distance Learning College, because you have all the materials available from the outset, you can move faster through sections you are more confident with, and take more time over the deeper ideas that need more thought and understanding.
