Qualification Levels

There are eight qualification levels and an entry level in the National Qualification Framework.

The levels shown opposite illustrate the qualification from the National Qualification Framework and the corresponding framework for Higher Education Qualifications.

In addition to the qualifications illustrated there is a wide variety of other vocational qualifications e.g. in IT there are qualifications offered by Microsoft, Oracle and Cisco which can be used to complement qualifcations from the framework.

In many cases it is possible to get in-work training in such qualifications.
 
 
Adult Social Care
 
What is Adult Social Care?
 
Employees in the Care sector work with older people, people with disabilities and children - many of whom need considerable support in their daily lives.

Adult Social Care is about helping adults with physical or psychological problems. Social care workers provide practical support in the service user’s own home (domiciliary care) or in a residential care setting - such as care homes for older people or for people with disabilities.

This is a sector that requires considerable ‘people’ skills. There are good opportunities to work your way up in your career, learning and getting qualified as you go, such as through NVQs. Older more experienced entrants are welcomed, so you can return to this type of work in later life or perhaps take an Access course to get into university.

All new Social Care staff must have a full (nationally recognised) induction training programme within their first six weeks of employment and foundation training within the first six months. Most employers also provide a wide range of in-house training related to specific client (user) groups.

Some social care workers train to become registered Social Workers, with responsibility for assessing and planning the levels of support people need.
