Why do a qualification?

A qualified workforce can help an organisation improve the support it offers to people with learning disabilities, and is evidence to commissioners and inspectors of the quality of your support.

BILD has more than ten years’ experience of supporting learning disability and advocacy workers to successfully complete national qualifications.

We believe people with learning disabilities should be supported by a well trained, and qualified workforce. We want to ensure workers have the right attitude to support people with dignity and respect, are able to listen to what they say and help them to have control over their life.

For both organisations and individuals, taking the new health and social care qualifications can be an investment that really pays off:

  • staff are more likely to provide a better quality service, understand the needs of the people they support and how to communicate with them more effectively
  • a qualified workforce can help provide a service to nationally recognised standards
  • developing a learning culture within an organisation helps improve the quality of the service


There are a number of benefits for your organisation in offering qualifications to your staff with BILD:

  • Ours is a flexible service built around your needs

  • You will be affiliated with a nationally recognised, learning disability specific, organisation and can benefit from BILD's expertise in both the delivery and assessment of qualifications, as well as our learning disability experience

  • We have supportive and friendly staff, don't just ask us, ask the people we're already working with
