Further to the planned withdrawal of a range of our health and social care qualifications, we have amended the last certification date of schemes 10397 and 10406 from those originally published. The final registration dates will remain the same.
Final entry date for OCR Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services (England) (Children and Young People’s Management) and OCR Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management for Residential Childcare (England) will be 30/06/2017; the final certification date will be 30/06/2019.
Please refer to the Notice to centres below for further information.
This qualification is for those working in a leadership role within the sector in England and is available from 1st February 2015.
The qualification is open to learners aged 19+ without prior learning or achievement of other qualifications. It is a requirement from the Department for Education for those working in a management or leadership role in residential childcare.
We’ve put together this guide to give additional guidance on how internal standardisation may be approached. These guidelines must be used in conjunction with the centre handbook and admin guide relevant to the qualification you are delivering.
