What does the qualification cover?
This qualiﬁcation provides the skills and knowledge required to manage, practice and lead others in adult health and social care provision or in children and young people’s services.
There are six pathways - three for adults and three tailored for children and young people:
• Residential Services
• Advanced Practice
Who is it suitable for?
The Management pathway is suitable for Assistant Managers and Deputy Managers working in day or domiciliary services who are looking to progress their career. It is also appropriate for Managers who have not yet achieved a vocational qualiﬁcation at this level.
The Residential Services pathway is aimed at those in similar job roles as those taking the Management pathways but the focus is on management and care in residential settings.
The Advanced Practice pathway is geared towards senior practitioners who would like to develop their career but wish to remain active practitioners in the management framework.
