(Replaced the NVQ Level 4 in Health and Social Care and the Leadership and Management of Care Services)
This QCF is the UK industry standard for those looking to become a leader within health and social care services. Delegates who undertake this internationally recognised qualification training will gain the fundamental skills and occupational competence necessary to lead across all social and health care settings.
This course is accredited by OFQUAL and will help your organisation to meet the conditions and standards required by the Care Quality Commission. This course is fully compliant with the Health and Social Care National Occupation Standards approved by Skills for Care & Development.
The diploma is completed by achieving 80 credits from a variety of different units. 64 of those credits come from the mandatory units, 12 credits from the 1st section of optional units and the remaining 4 credits from the 2nd section of optional units. Please do call us for more information.
The optional knowledge and competence units cover a variety of areas in health and social care, enabling delegates to tailor the course to their own specific career development needs. Please contact us to request further information on the optional pathways available.
How does assessment take place?
Our assessment process consists of an evaluation of work-based performance. This requires delegates to put together a portfolio of evidence demonstrating that they can achieve the course objectives to the required standard.
To assist delegates we appoint a QCF assessor who will help assemble the portfolio and guide the delegate through the process. Email and telephone support is also on hand for the duration of the training and the resources available to training delegates will be outlined by your assessor.
What are the entry requirements?
Potential delegates need to have been employed in a relevant vocational setting in order for them to be able to complete the qualification successfully, but it is strongly recommended that candidates have completed the Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care. Please contact us for more information.
How long will it take?
The course is completely flexible and we encourage students to learn at their own pace. The awarding body do stipulate that the course is completed within 36 months, but most students will successful finish the programme in around 9!
How would I progress further?
Upon completing this programme, graduates can move on to QCF Level 7 Diploma in Leadership and Management if they are in an appropriate management position. Alternatively we offer a huge range of specialist care courses to enhance their chosen pathway.
