Only HCSWs who have achieved or are currently undertaking education and training to Level 3 of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF)4 or equivalent with at least 2 years’ experience as a HCSW will be considered eligible for training in vaccine administration.
This training is a blended learning programme that consists of 2 MANDATORY components:
- PRE-WORK (full details on the Course Profile) – this is an essential part of the training which provides the required knowledge across all areas of immunisation. You will be expected to draw upon this knowledge in the virtual seminar. It is your responsibility to ensure that the pre-work has been satisfactorily completed.
- INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL SEMINAR (approx. 3 hours) – this session explores and builds upon the content covered in the pre-work. You will be expected to participate in quizzes, case study and scenario discussions with peers so you MUST have a working microphone.
You can start the pre-work at any time. Please view the Course Profile for details. You MUST complete the required pre-learning and send certificates as proof of completion to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 2 days before the live session.
After the session, you will then be expected to have competency documents signed in practice with an appropriately qualified assessor before being deemed competent to administer vaccines. This process will be discussed in the virtual session.
This course is funded if your Practice subscribes to the Primary Care Education Programme.
The cost of the course for NON Education Programme Members is £50.
