Approval of new apprenticeships standards

Posted on Friday 14th February 2020

The Leader in Adult Care (level 5) apprenticeship standard has now been approved for delivery with the funding band agreed at £7,000.

Helen Wilcox, Care Apprenticeship Board and Trailblazer Group Chair said, “I cannot thank the employers, training providers and Awarding Organisations enough for their hard work, commitment and dedication in creating standards that are rigorous, robust, high quality and fundamental in ensuring we maintain high standards of care delivery within the Adult Care Sector”.

This new standard is designed for job titles such as registered, assistant, deputy, unit or service manager and is expected to be as popular as the existing Care Leadership and Management framework which had over 6,500 starts last year and will close on 31 July 2020.

It’s estimated that it‘ll take around 18 months to complete the standard which includes gaining the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management for Adult Care before end-point assessment through Observation of Leadership and a Professional Discussion.

The Lead Practitioner in Adult Care (level 4) apprenticeship standard has also had its funding band approved at £7,000 with the assessment plan in the final stages of approval.

Once an end-point assessment organisation has committed to deliver assessment for the Lead Practitioner in Adult Care (level 4) , the apprenticeship standard will be available to employers and employees.
