**Level 5 Health & Social Care Diploma – Endorsed by QLS**

According to recent figures, the UK has an ageing population, with people aged 65 and up expected to make up 20% of the population by 2027. The UK has a number of health issues, including ageing populations, obesity, mental health problems, and chronic diseases. These difficulties call for a multidisciplinary strategy that combines medical treatment, social support, and preventive measures. Additionally, statistics show that there is a growing need for qualified healthcare workers in the UK. The NHS alone employs nearly 1.5 million people, making it one of the country's top employers.

With an increasing demand for qualified workers in various industries, this course gives a solid basis for a successful career while addressing the nation's serious healthcare concerns. Additionally, the course addresses the significance of dealing with societal health disparities. According to research, some groups, including those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, members of racial or ethnic minorities, and those with disabilities, have difficulty getting access to high-quality medical treatment and social services. The Health and Social Care course gives students the skills and information they need to confront these inequities and contribute towards establishing a more equitable healthcare system.

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?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

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.
