Overview

Live in the UK? Aged 24 or more? You could apply for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan. The Government has introduced 24+ Advanced Learning Loans to help learners, aged 24 and over, in further education pay the college or training organisation fee. Getting a Loan doesn’t depend on your household income and there’s no credit check. You won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £21,000 a year. Once you earn over this amount you pay back 9% of the earnings you receive above this figure.


Our Health and Social Care Level 3 Diploma course is the full level 3 qualification listed on the QCF (QRN: 501/2263/0) and is eligible for the 24+ Advanced Learning Loan funding. Upon successful completion you will be awarded 58 credits.

The QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 3 is a nationally recognised qualification based on the Health and Social Care National Occupation Standards approved by Skills for Care & Development. It is recognised by care providers, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and nursing universities. The award will confirm knowledge, skills and competence for those working with adults and children across all social care settings, including residential settings, primary care environments, domiciliary services, day services and supported living.

In order to complete this course you will need to have a work placement in a social care setting. It is recommended that you spend approximately 100 hours in a Real Work Environment.

Please note: This course is textbook based, and therefore the lessons are not available to be viewed online. If you choose the online method of study with this course, you will be able to view your question papers and tutor feedback online.
