Level 3 Understanding Mental Health (Online Course)

With increasing worries at each life stage, whether linked to exam pressure, work expectations, unemployment or financial difficulties, it is not surprising that individuals may struggle to cope with the demands of everyday life.

Approximately one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. This is why it is more important than ever before to increase our understanding of mental health in order to tackle this growing health concern and challenge the stigma attached to mental ill health.

This online qualification will enable you to develop a thorough knowledge and understanding of mental health and well-being. It will equip learners with the skills needed to work in a mental health service, making it ideal for those who want to progress in the health and social care sector.

The course is split into five manageable units, to be completed over five months:

Unit 1: Understanding the context of mental health and well-being.
Unit 2: Promotion of mental health and well-being.
Unit 3: Mental health problems: associated issues and consequences.
Unit 4: Understanding mental ill health.
Unit 5: Working in mental health.

The course can be fully funded via an Advanced Learner Loan which only becomes repayable when you earn over £25,000 per annum.  If you are interested in taking this course, please complete the Expression of Interest Form and return it to us.

e-Assessor Assistance

We have found that some learners contact us when they are experiencing problems with e-Assessor and have addressed the most common reasons below.

I can’t login

This is often because the username/password hasn’t been copied correctly – please check this against your welcome letter and ensure that there are no spaces before or after. If you are still experiencing issues, please email learners@profiledt.co.uk and we will reset your username/password and send your new credentials via email as soon as possible.

Please ensure you read the e-Assessor Induction Guide before contacting us as the problems you are experiencing may be answered in the guide. If you experience any other technical difficulties, please email learners@profiledt.co.uk detailing the problem and we will get back to you at the earliest opportunity.

I can’t submit my work

This is usually because the learner has not ticked the box to confirm that they are happy with their answer. Please refer to page 3 of the e-Assessor Induction Guide regarding this particular issue.

I haven’t received any feedback for my work

Our Assessors aim to feedback within ten working days of receiving work submissions but during busier times, this isn’t always possible.

If, in the unlikely event, you haven’t received your feedback within ten working days, please email your assessor who will be able to provide you with an estimated time scale in this regard.

Have you received my work?

As the learner, it is your responsibility to ensure your work is submitted correctly and on time. Please ensure you log in regularly and action any work assigned by your assessor – which could be AFTER you have submitted a unit. Please note, just because you have submitted your work, it does not necessarily mean it has been signed off and the learning criteria has been met.

Please check your TO DO REGULARLY to ensure work is not missed and that your work has been submitted, which will be shown by a title ‘Submitted to Assessor’ or ‘Confirmation of Unit Sign-off’.

I have submitted my work and it says ‘Assessor Saved and Sent for Verification’ – what does this mean?

This means that the Assessor has received your work, marked it and sent it to Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) to verify and sign off.

If you are experiencing any other problems not covered on this page, please email learners@profiledt.co.uk and we will try our best to remedy the problem.
