`Precise, positive and professional. It is clearly set out, uses straightforward language and successfully demystifies the caring profession. I was particularly impressed with the presentation of the work exercises, which lend themselves to use in formal training courses and in informal groups. Indeed, one of the book's major strengths is its potential for use in different settings and by a variety of people.' - Care Weekly `Stuart Sillars has written a book which will be of great value for anyone undertaking training the caring profession. I would certainly recommend this book for colleges, care settings and candidates undertaking NVQ/SVQ level 2 through a college-based route or by open or flexible learning. It is a valuable tool in addressing standards of care workers and work settings and can only help to raise the quality of care.' - Care Standard The book is suitable for care workers preparing for an NVQ/SVQ award at level 2, for students taking intermediate GNVQ, City & Guilds or other equivalent care courses, and for people studying informally on their own, perhaps because they are looking after a freind or relative at home.
