Transcend COSHH Activists is a suite of specialist qualification pathways integral to the Transcend Level 2 Award in the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health. This is an Ofqual regulated vocational qualification that sits in sector subject area 1.3 Health and social care. It is uniquely designed to be completed in the context of a specialist pathway that represents the learner’s occupational environment.

The Care Environment pathway refers to any home, residential or respite care environment. It is relevant to any person in a care practitioner role. This includes but is not limited to home carers, residential carers, coordinators, managers, social workers, nurses and any auxiliary workers in these settings including cleaners, and kitchen staff.

The purpose of this qualification pathway is to develop the learner’s ability to adhere to safe practice in the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health [COSHH] in the context of their own role in a care environment. 

It differs from other similar qualifications as it requires all training and assessment to be contextualised to the learner’s occupational environment and job role. Contextualisation is proven to enhance the learning experience, increase achievement rates and enables safe practice in the context of own role upon completion.

This qualification pathway is developed with safety education specialists RYNAT as the technical collaborators. It was validated through consultation with employers, education providers and equality experts.

This qualification pathway is available to be delivered through education providers that comply with the Transcend Centre Recognition and Supplementary Qualification Pathway Conditions.
