Description

The purpose of this course is to develop the knowledge and skills required by managers and leaders. Achieving the qualification should enable learners to innovate and respond to a changing environment and to meet challenges and opportunities within the sector. This course is approved by TQUK and has been designed for those who want to work in a management position within the health & social care sector, specialising in adult mental health care. This qualification is a CQC requirement for anyone who wants to apply to be a Care Manager or Registered Care Manager in the care sector specialising in mental health care management. It replaces the old Level 4 registered manager qualification and the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management in Health and social care, children and young people.
