Following a recent communication from Skills for Care, we are confirming that OCR will not be further extending last entry dates for these qualifications. The last entry date therefore remains as 31st August 2018, with the last certification date of 31st December 2020.
This qualification is for those working in a Leadership role within the Health and Social Care sector in England and is available from October 2014. The qualification is open to learners aged 19+ without prior learning or achievement of other qualifications. It is best suited to those who are already working in a management role working with adults in a residential care home or care setting; or those that are responsible for planning services, measuring performance and delivering continuous improvement in care services.
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.
