This Health & Social Care qualification is developed to provide a foundation of skills and knowledge for those working in a variety of roles in Health & Social Care.

This 60 credit Level 4 Diploma in Health and Social Care Management (Fast track course) qualification is designed for managers in various types of organisations including hospitals and care homes in both the public and private sector.

Whilst the core competencies were drawn from the British healthcare system it has also been carefully considered that many managers may wish to use these qualifications abroad and so international aspects of healthcare policy and practice have also been included.

We also offer a larger, 120-credit qualification in health and social care Management at this level.

This 60 credits qualification can be completed in as small a time as 4 to 6 months!


The qualification has been developed with career progression & professional recognition in mind. As this qualification is approved and regulated by OfQual (Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulation), learners are eligible to gain direct entry into Year 2 of a three-year UK Bachelors degree programme and Level 5 diploma including health and social care.


Qualifications at RQF Level 4 represent practical knowledge, skills, capabilities and competences that are assessed in academic terms as being equivalent to Higher National Certificates (HNC) and Year 1 of a three-year UK Bachelors degree programme.
