Supports learners to understand why Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) have been introduced to the Mental Capacity Act via the Mental Health Act 2007 amendments. The unit will help learners to distinguish between what is restriction of liberty and what is deprivation of liberty. There will also be the opportunity to examine real case studies heard at the Court of Protection to understand the dilemmas that are faced within this legislation.

There are five learning outcomes for this unit:

  • Outcome 1: Understand legislation which affects people who may be subject to Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards
  • Outcome 2: Understand the assessment processes for providing statutory Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy – Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards
  • Outcome 3: Be able to support the individual during the statutory Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards assessment process
  • Outcome 4: Be able to construct an Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy – Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards written report
  • Outcome 5: Be able to challenge deprivation of liberty decisions

 

Please note: our City & Guilds Units 301 through to 310 & 313 are ‘competency-based’ i.e. assessed by producing a portfolio of evidence to meet the learning outcomes. You therefore must be working as an independent DoLS advocate to draw from your current practice for your portfolio of evidence. 

 

Individual Units can be taken as stand-alone accredited courses. These cost £590.00 per person per unit, all costs included. NO VAT charged.

The full QIA package, completing the four Core Units plus one of the Specialist Units is £1,500.00 per person. No VAT.

  • Prices of accredited pathways include attendance at training, registration, course materials, 12 months assessor support and C&G certification.

 

You can also attend the training only these units for continuing professional development, where no assessed work is required. You do not need to be working in independent advocacy to attend for CPD. To do this costs £120.00 per person per day. No VAT.
