Learners may show their abilities by providing evidence from their job or training activities. In the Health and Social Care sector, learners can gain care management skills.

Since you need to complete the mandatory units with the optionals, the GLH for this certification is 480.

Total Qualification Time:

This is a rough estimation of how long it would take a learner to reach and show the degree of achievement required for the certification to be awarded; i.e. to complete all learning objectives.

Total Qualification Time is made up of GLH and an estimation of how many hours a learner is likely to spend on planning, research, or any other type of learning, including evaluation, that is guided by but not supervised by an instructor, supervisor, or tutor. TQT determines the credit value of qualification if one is granted since one credit equals 10 hours of learning.

This qualification takes a total of 1200 hours to complete. 

The Total Credit value is 120.

Methods of Assessment

We encourage lecturers to use a range of assessment types that will engage learners and

give them an opportunity to both demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of a topic, and to evaluate how they might apply that knowledge in a given context. This should be part of the

assessment strategy and can include:

  • A research activity resulting in the compilation of a report
  • An academic paper or article for publication
  • The compilation of a case study
  • A critical review and evaluation of a chosen company’s policies, procedures and systems
  • A set project completed for an employer (also known as an ‘employer-engagement’ activity)
  • The production of a portfolio of evidence relating to a particular unit

Who is this course for?

  • Co-ordinator
  • Support worker or supervisor
  • Senior Care worker or supervisor
  • Assistant or Deputy Manager
  • Manager
  • Nursing staff
  • Care Manager/Social Worker
  • Team Leader
  • Registered Manager


For learners who have recently been in education or training the entry profile is likely to include one of the following:

  • A GCE Advanced level profile with achievement in 2 or more subjects supported by or more GCSEs at grades C and above
  • Other related level 3 subjects
  • An Access to Higher Education Certificate delivered by an approved further
  • education institute and validated by an Access Validating Agency
  • other equivalent international qualifications

Learners may also have relevant work experience.

Mature learners may present a more varied profile of achievement that is likely to include relevant work experience (paid and/or unpaid) with levels of responsibility, participation and/or achievement of relevant professional qualifications. This may be used for recognition of prior learning (RPL).

Learners must also have an appropriate standard of English to enable them to access relevant resources and complete the unit assignments. For those whose English is not their first language we recommend the following standards of proficiency in English language skills or an approved equivalent for this qualification:

  • IELTS 5.5
  • Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) B2
  • Cambridge English Advanced (CAE) 162 or above
  • Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic 42-49
