Leader in Adult Care (level 5) apprenticeship assessment plan is now published

Posted on Friday 16th August 2019

The Leader in Adult Care (level 5) apprenticeship assessment plan has been published today (16 August 2019) by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE). The Adult Care Trailblazer group,  led by domiciliary care provider Helen Wilcox, has been negotiating with IfATE and its predecessors for four years to reach this moment.

Helen Wilcox says:

The Trailblazer Group’s ambition for this apprenticeship was to ensure that the leaders and managers of services are equipped to deliver strength-based, person-centred care and support to our most vulnerable citizens maximising their health and wellbeing.

The Leader in Adult Care apprenticeship standard sets out the high technical understanding required by those individuals who have responsibility to ensure the most vulnerable adults receive excellent quality of care and support.

It still needs to be confirmed which funding band will be assigned. The original level of £6,000 is being reviewed by IfATE following quotations by learning providers and potential end-point assessment organisations.

Once this has been confirmed, learning providers will need some time to prepare the course before they are ready to take on new apprentices. Potential end-point assessment organisations for this standard can now apply to the government’s Register of End-Point Assessment Organisations for this standard.
