Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People Services
The Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care qualification is designed to develop both managerial and care skills. The Adults' Management Pathway fulfills the regulatory requirements of those looking to become managers of adult residential care settings and domiciliary services.
This Level 5 Diploma has replaced both of the following qualifications:
Health and Social Care Level 4 NVQ
NVQ in Leadership and Management for Care Services (LMC)
Both are now combined and offered as the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children's and Young People's Services (England) (QCF)
To complete this course you must be a registered care manager or an assistant/deputy manager.

You will be assigned a friendly specialist management tutor who will guide you through the work needed and will also visit you in your workplace to observe you.
Independent learning - For Level 5 courses, you are expected to be at a level where you are able to study independently, therefore you have the opportunity to complete as many assignments as you want in your own time and in your own location. Our experienced assessor will still be on hand to answer queries by email or over the phone and can provide one-to-one workshops if required.
Meetings with your assessor - On this flexible course, you are encouraged to meet with your assessor regularly as this is the best way to discuss progress, receive feedback and gain advice and help with the standards that you are working on to achieve the qualification. These workshops are based in Sheffield, Rotherham and surrounding areas and are aimed at meeting your needs. You can choose to meet your assessor as many times as you like and they can visit you in your workplace to make it easier for you. Observations will also need to be organised in the workplace.
