Following a review of the Cambridge Technical qualifications we have made the difficult decision to withdraw the Level 4 Diploma in Health and Social care due to the low uptake. We will continue to support and assess the qualifications up to the final certification date shown below:
It is no longer possible to enter learners for this qualification.
The last certification date is: 31 December 2019.
The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has published the list of qualifications where funding is being withdrawn in England. This includes 24 of our non-examined assessment Level 3 2012 Cambridge Technicals. All 2016 Cambridge Technicals qualifications are unaffected.
We have no plans at present to withdraw any of our 2012 Cambridge Technicals qualifications since they are used across the UK. We’ll help you to identify your options, including moving to the 2016 Cambridge Technicals.
Funding in England will continue for those students who begin their study before August 2020 up to their completion.
This qualification enables learners to develop the knowledge and skills required to study and progress within health and social care sectors or to higher education.
It reflects the latest policies and covers areas such as the care of people with dementia, the needs of adults within social care services and leadership. Optional units enable learners to specialise and include areas such as the needs of individuals with long term conditions and end of life care needs.
