Health & Social Care
Diploma Level 3- 7
About the Course
The Health and Social Care Management Qualifications have been designed for managers in different types of organizations including hospitals and care homes in both the public and the private sector.
Whilst the core competencies were drawn from the British healthcare system it has also been carefully considered that many managers may wish to use these qualifications abroad and so international aspects of healthcare policy and practice have also been included.
For learners who have recently been in education or training the entry profile is likely to include:
a first degree in a healthcare related subject or
a level 6 qualification, for example, an ATHE Diploma in Healthcare Management
other equivalent international qualifications
Learners must also have an appropriate standard of English to enable them to access
relevant resources and complete the unit assignments.
Learners may also have relevant work experience.
Mature learners may present a more varied profile of achievement that is likely to include
extensive relevant work experience (paid and/or unpaid) with levels of responsibility,
participation and/or achievement of a range of relevant professional qualifications. This may be used for recognition of prior learning (RPL).
