Funded care and housing qualifications at level 2

Nuts and Bolts Training is working in partnership with a long established national training provider to offer the following range of fully funded* vocationally related qualifications at level 2. 

The qualifications are delivered through a distance learning process over a period of 8 – 16 weeks using high quality workbooks with support and guidance provided by a dedicated team of qualified assessors/tutors. 

This delivery model provides flexibility for organisations where absence from the workplace can be difficult to manage and the excellent workbooks act as an on-going reference material.  The programmes are available to those seeking employment as well as those currently in work and may therefore be suitable for tenants of housing associations in addition to staff.

Application must be made through an employer and should be for a minimum number of eight candidates.  Each candidate must be 19 or over (born before 1st September 1997) and must have lived in the EU for at least three years.
