Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services (England) (RQF)
This qualification, which replaces the Level 4 NVQ in Leadership and Management for Care Services and the Level 4 NVQ in Health and Social care, is for people who work in the health and social care sector either as managers of the provision or as senior practitioners including assistants and deputy managers. This qualification allows you to develop your managerial and care skills and is therefore ideal for those looking to become managers of adult residential and domiciliary services or to be an advanced practitioner.
This is a competency based qualification and evidence is gathered by the candidate as they undertake their normal work role. This will form the basis for their portfolio. The evidence must reflect policies and procedures of the work place as stated by current government legislation.
