The QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 3 is a nationally recognised qualification based on the Health and Social Care National Occupation Standards approved by Skills for Care & Development.

This qualification is recognised by care providers, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and nursing universities. It is designed to give you the knowledge, understanding and skills required to work in a senior role with adults across all social care environments.

Along with their first set of course materials, learners will receive a comprehensive guide giving plenty of information on what is required during the placement, how to arrange it and the types of activities that they will need to complete (including examples of the types of evidence that will need to be submitted).

The learning outcomes from this course are as follows:

  • The course promotes equality and inclusion in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings.
  • The course also promotes a person-centred approach to working in health and social care.
