Extension of Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services

Extension of Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services

Due to the delay in the publication of the Level 5 Apprenticeship Standard for Leaders in Adult Care we have decided to extend our Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services along with some of the associated pathways.

This means that there will still be an option for apprenticeship learners to take the qualifications as part of various apprenticeships, either SASE or new Standards.

Find out more about this qualification, which pathways will be extended and what this means for apprentices below.
