Our customers have told us how important it is for people working in learning disability services to think about the Standards specifically in relation to the individuals they work with and how policies and systems may differ. We have therefore created a set of online assessments for the Common Induction Standards that, where appropriate, focus on the issues and situations that relate specifically to working with individuals with learning disabilities.
The Learning Disability Qualification is no longer available as a separate induction and qualification programme and people supporting individuals with learning disabilities are expected to complete the Adult Social Care Common Induction Standards. These should be completed with consideration to working in a learning disability context. The workbooks and learning materials we have created for the Common Induction Standards can also be used.
