Levels 1/2 Functional Skills in English, Maths & ICT
Functional Skills is a free standing qualification designed to give learners the skills to operate confidently, effectively and independently in education, work or everyday life. They have been created in response to employers’ recommendations that learners would benefit from a thorough grounding in the basics and ability to problem-solve. English, Maths and ICT are essential subjects that are included in most training and education programmes. They are a mandatory component of Diplomas, Foundation learning programmes and Apprenitceships and can be studied as a stand alone qualification or a stepping stone to GCSEs.
Level 2/3/5 Diploma in Health & Social Care (Adults)
The National Qualification Framework (NQF) was replaced in 2010 by the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). These offer a clear progression routes towards Continuous Professional Development. The new Diploma replaces the NVQ. Our Diplomas are largely delivered in the workplace, although classroom provision is also available. The QCF qualification is made up of units; you can study a generic pathway or a specialist pathway depending on your sector and area of expertise. By building up your credits you can progress to the next level and maintain your CPD. Diplomas in Health and Social Care are available at these levels to facilitate Career progression and to help meet the national minimum standards as regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Diplomas in Health and Social Care are mainly to prove an individual’s professional competency in their role. A learner will need to be working within that role to enable the assessor to determine the learner competency and to meet the qualification standards.
