  • Why choose this qualification?

    Skills for Care have issued further information relating to the current Level 5 Higher Apprenticeship in Care Leadership and Management (SASE) England Framework and the new Level 5 Leader in Adult Care Apprenticeship Standard. The assessment plan is not yet signed-off by the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA), however it is expected that this will be finalised in Autumn/Winter 2018. The publication of the Leader in Adult Care assessment plan will trigger the standard becoming ‘live’ and allow apprentices to commence the new apprenticeship standard.

    Therefore, the current apprenticeship framework, the Level 5 Higher Apprenticeship in Care Leadership and Management (SASE), will remain open to learners for registrations until 31st December 2019. The framework contains the current Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services (England) qualification and the adult pathways within the Diploma will also remain open to learners for the length of the framework.

    Gateway Qualifications has therefore extended the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services (England) qualification to 31 August 2019.

    Rules of Combination

    Learners must gain a minimum of 90 credits to achieve the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services (England) (QCF). Learners must achieve 30 credits from Group A mandatory units and the remaining credits from one of the pathways.
