About this course
Our Level 5 Leadership and Management of Health and Social Care: Practice qualification will enable learners to develop and demonstrate their knowledge, understanding, behaviours, skills and practice within a Health and Social Care setting.
Successful completion of this qualification will enable learners to apply for registration with Social Care Wales as a Registered Manager, provided that they also meet all other registration requirements.
This qualification is for those in a Leadership or Management role within the Health and Social Care sector, who have completed the Level 4 Preparing for Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care qualification (or an agreed comparable qualification).
To achieve the Level 5 Leadership and Management of Health and Social Care: Practice qualification learners must achieve a minimum of 120 credits in total.
Learners will be required to undertake a mixture of mandatory units and optional units (we will work with you to decide what optional units are relevant to your role, and your business).
When you agree to undertake an Apprenticeship, you may be required to complete Essential Skills qualifications, depending on your previous qualifications, the Apprenticeship level you are completing and your own particular needs.
This qualification will primarily be delivered through 1-to-1 sessions with a member of our delivery team, using a mixture of face-to-face and remote learning sessions.
Upon enrolment, learners are also allocated an assessor. Throughout the qualification, the assessor will visit the learner either at their workplace or remotely (for example, via Microsoft Teams) on a monthly basis, to support progress, observe and set tasks.
Learners are supported and encouraged throughout their qualification to reach their full potential in their chosen industry.
