SVQ 

Social Services &
Healthcare – Level 2
(Unpaid Carers)

Who is this SVQ For?
This project has been set up to enable any unpaid carers, who care for a loved
one, friend, neighbour, etc, to gain an SVQ Level 2, while carrying out their
caring role at home. The skills, experiences and knowledge a carer has can be
transferred into an SVQ qualification.

What is involved in gaining this SVQ?
• The carer will be allocated an SVQ Assessor who will assess them against
nationally set standards (National Occupational Standards). The assessor will
come along and observe them in their caring role. • The carer will also provide written work to explain their work practices and
knowledge within their caring role.

What are the benefits to the carer?
• The carer will have increased confidence in their caring ability enabling
them to cope in a more relaxed manner.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE CARER HAS THE CONSENT OF THE PERSON THEY ARE CARING FOR.
