These qualifications are designed to equip learners with the skills and knowledge needed to care for others in a broad range of health or social care settings.

A Diploma in Health and Social Care is flexible to suit all fields of health and social care. Learners can select a pathway that suits their role – for example, working with people with a learning disability, people with dementia or children and young people.

This is the main qualification required by the Quality Care Commission in England and the Care Councils in Wales and Northern Ireland. These are the recognised qualifications for care workers and senior care workers in health and social care.
To take the Level 3 qualification, you must be working in a care setting already. For the Level 2 qualification, you may have no previous experience, or you might be working in care and want recognition for your current skills.
