It has been designed to match the requirements of the new Apprenticeship Standard for Leader in Adult Care. Please note that although the Apprenticeship Standard for Leader in Adult Care has been approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships, the assessment plan has not yet been approved and therefore this Apprenticeship is not yet ready for delivery.
The handbook and unit pack for the new BIIAB L5 Diploma in Leadership and Management for Adult Care are available on the BIIAB website.
The SASE framework will remain open to learners for registrations until 31 December 2019. BIIAB have extended the BIIAB Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services (England) until 31 December 2019.
The new Apprenticeship Standard for Leader in Adult Care is expected to be approved for delivery later this year once the assessment plan has been approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships. The new Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management in Adult Care will be the mandatory qualification within the new Apprenticeship Standard.
Please note that for the immediate future, only the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services (England) is mandatory for Apprentices. As such, we recommend that centres continue to register all learners on the original Diploma and SASE apprenticeship framework until the new apprenticeship standard is approved.
The current and new Apprenticeships and Qualifications will run side by side for a period of time to allow centres and learners to choose between the different options.
