Assessment Methods

  • Why choose this qualification?

    This qualification replaces the current qualification for the Health and Social Care SASE framework and any new adult care apprentices will require this qualification as part of the Lead Adult Care Worker standards for the new trailblazer apprenticeship. The Standard was facilitated by Skills for Care and Development and in partnership with employers, unions and professional bodies.

    This qualification is a mandatory part of training programme for apprentices prior to completing end point assessment. The qualification enables the learner to achieve the core NOS identified in the Skills for Care specification for a lead adult care worker: Communication, Person development, Values and behaviours, Health and wellbeing, Responsibilities, Safeguarding.

    The optional units can support end point assessment and will help learners to acquire, develop and implement their leadership abilities. In addition, the units focus in a range of specialisms, clinical skills and aspects of support. An employer will work with the apprentice to select the most appropriate grouping of units to support their role and development.

    Rules of Combination

    Learners must achieve 28 credits from the mandatory group and a minimum of 6 credits from Optional Group 04 - Leadership Skills. The remaining 24 credits may be taken from any of the optional groups. A maximum of 16 credits may be taken at Level 2 from the optional units.
