Does anyone know of good training exercises to increase knowledge and skills when assessing the 'O' unit (SVQs in care at level 2 and 3). I already have GIZMO pack but am looking for more interactive and thought provoking exercises.

  1. assessment & learning ‘O’ unit
    Hi Mandi

    Two activities I have found useful.

    Idea 1. Policies, legislation, systems, organisations relevant to rights.

    Get the learner to consider three areas through mind mapping. The workplace, local and national.
    This seems to help people get this in context and makes for good evidence. Good for links between legislation and practice.
    eg What is in place in your workplace: answers could include workplace policies (abuse, anti-disrimination etc). Complaints procedure on notice board. Service users committee.
    What is in place locally could include: health authority inspection team, key worker, age concern advocacy service etc.
    What is in place nationally could include: Bill of human rights, duty of care, European course etc.

    Your answers may be better.

    Idea 2: Antidiscrimination.
    I use a list of terms commonly used in equality and the candidates have to match the terms with the definitions. This makes a good basis for discussion to take place and learners appear to enjoy it.
