A new qualification aimed at those who work in the care sector is now available through the Hoople training centre.

The City and Guilds QCF Level 4 diploma in adult care is suitable for those who are hoping to progress to manager or senior worker level within the health and social care sector. As such, it is targeted at care workers or assistants, community workers, healthcare assistants, support workers and team leaders.

To undertake the qualification, applicants must be aged 18 or over and already working in a care setting. Most candidates would be expected to complete the qualification in 9-12 months, dependent upon circumstances and their time commitment. Assessment is based primarily on workplace assessments and observations and the compilation of a portfolio of evidence containing written statements and reflective accounts.
