The Residential Services pathways are aimed at learners in similar job roles as those taking the Management pathways but the focus is on management and care in residential settings.

The Advanced Practice pathways are geared towards senior practitioners who would like to develop their career but wish to remain active practitioners within the management framework.

Entry requirements and experience in real work environments:

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification but learners will need to be at least 18 years of age. It is also recommended that they will hold a Level 3 qualification or above in a related area.

Work in a real work environment
Learners will need to be working, volunteering or on practical placement as they need to show competence in both knowledge and skills.

All units are internally assessed and will be pass or refer. Assessment enables the learner's workplace practice to provide evidence for individual units as well as the whole qualification.

The course trainer was very funny and knowledgeable of Paediatric First Aid. I feel very confident in everything I learned. Easy to find the training venue, accessibility was good, and a friendly environment.
