Overview

This NVQ Level 5 Health and Social Care qualification was previously known as the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services, and Level 5 NVQ in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services.

This current qualification, Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management for Adult Care (RQF), is the most up to date recognised qualification for Registered Managers that is approved by CQC and Skills For Care.

Note on Fees - We charge fees for all our services as we are not government funded.

The initial payment made through this website pays for initial IAG (Information, Advice, and Guidance), and Induction support.

These IAG learning resources provide essential learning support which will contribute to completion of the personal development unit.

There are no separate exams for this qualification, only assessments.

After completing the IAG resources, continuing learners pay the qualification fees to cover everything including, qualification assessment, ongoing learner support, internal quality assurance, and certification on completion, and printed Diploma certificate from the Awarding Body.

After IAG, the learner can pay the remaining qualification fees as a one-off payment of £1680

The Qualification Fees can also be paid in instalments in Monthly Payment Plans, as follows:

  • 15 months payment plan - Pay £140/month for 15 months = £2100
  • 18 months payment plan - Pay £117/month for 18 months = £2106

After IAG, if the learner chooses not to progress to the full qualification by paying the qualification fees for the full qualification learning, assessments, quality assurance, and certification, then they don't need to do anything else, and the IAG course will expire in 45 days.

However, the learner's login on Courses For Jobs Ltd LMS will remain live, and the learner will still have access to the Online Communities within our LMS.

That is what the IAG payment is for, and if you want those lessons you have to pay the fee, and we will give you access to them.

Svea asked:

I am head of care . Can this be completed in less than 12 months?

Answer:

The learner determines the time it takes to complete the qualification. If you complete all your assessments to the required Level 5 standard in less than 12 months, then yes. Your job should enable you to provide work-based evidence to prove your skills & competence to the required standard. For example, if the evidence you submit shows poor practice that puts service-users at risk then it will not be accepted, & you will be expected to implement good practice & submit evidence at that standard

This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
Diane Doody asked:

I previously managed a small team for two years. Can I complete the criteria if I do not manage anyone in my present role.

Answer:

No, the work-based evidence must be current, as in the evidence must be generated from the current job not something you did years ago. Therefore, if you want to do this qualification, you should get a role as either a manager or deputy manager in a care setting, either residential care (care home), or domiciliary/community care (home care), or related care setting for adults.

Answer:

Hi Ngozi. Yes you can still apply. This course is for managers of care settings, and with 12 years' experience in the care sector, you should be ready for promotion. The practical aspects of this course require you to be in a management job, either as a deputy manager or a full manager. You can still start the course if you are currently a care support worker, but during the course you should move to a management job role in order to be able to provide work-based evidence as manager.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
