Here at Care Academy we are happy to report our online Learning Disability Qualification – Induction Award (LDQ-IA) is going from strength to strength and having recently achieved City and Guilds Approved Centre status we thought that some more information about why we chose City and Guilds would be helpful.

The LDQ-IA qualification which includes both the level 2 and level 3 Induction Award in supporting people with learning disabilities is based on the framework developed by Skills for Care and the Valuing People Support Team.

City and Guilds state:

"The intention for these qualifications is to benefit learners by developing their skills and facilitating career progression and to benefit employers by providing certificated evidence that the employers have fulfilled their responsibility to provide learning to their workers that meets Common Induction Standards."

The qualifications are also designed to contribute to learner’s knowledge and understanding of the related Level 2 and Level 3 NVQs in Health and Social Care along with the Skills for Care’s Common Induction Standards.

If you would like to know more about the benefits of the LDQ-IA qualification please visit our website or contact us on 0330 995 0840.
