Skills for Care and Development Assessment Principles

This document sets out the minimum expected principles and approaches to assessment, and should be read alongside qualification regulatory arrangements and any specific requirements set out for particular qualifications.


Skill Selector

The Skill Selector is an interactive online tool to help those working in adult social care get to grips with the different qualifications available.

The simple step-by-step tool helps you build qualifications and choose the right units to meet your needs.

It also contains case study profiles to demonstrate how learners may tailor their learning to their particular job role. (Please note: these are suggestions only)
