English for Care

This English for Care course is for carers, healthcare and nursing assistants who need to communicate effectively with patients and colleagues.

SLC’s English for Care course enables carers with elementary or lower intermediate level English to give safe and effective care.

The course covers a wide range of essential areas with a strong focus on looking after patients, including the elderly and confused. Topics include managing pain, pressure area care, dealing with falls, mental health issues, infection control, dealing with elderly patients, taking observations, and managing daily activities, such as toileting, food, drink and mobility.

Inputs and tasks focus on interactions with patients and nurses, care-specific language, and essential medical and everyday terminology.

Learn on the go

The course can be used wherever a learner has an internet connection, allowing study to fit around busy work schedules. Inputs and activities are short and focused, so even 10 minutes will be enough to learn some useful language.

CPD accreditation

Online English for Care is accredited by the CPD Standards Office in the UK. On completion, the nurse receives a formal CPD Standards certificate for 48 CPD hours or points. CPD hours are accepted internationally and across multiple professional sectors.
