This qualification provides you with the knowledge and skills needed to manage practice and lead others in adult health and social care provision, or in children and young people’s services.
It has six pathways – three for adults and three for children and young people:
• Residential Services
• Advanced Practice
The Management pathway is suitable for Assistant Managers and Deputy Managers working in a day or domiciliary services who are looking to progress their careers. 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 careers but wish to remain active practitioners in the management framework.
