Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care


The Level 3 Extended Diploma aims to help students who are considering progressing into or within employment in the health and social care sector, either directly on achievement of the award or following further study to degree level. It is broadly equivalent to three GCE A Levels. You will achieve a nationally recognised level 3 vocationally-specific qualification, and develop a range of skills, techniques and attributes essential for successful performance in working life.

Entry Requirements
Entry Requirement for Level 3:
– A level 2 qualification in health and social care or a related vocational area
– A standard of literacy and numeracy supported by a general education equivalent to four GCSEs at grade A*-C
– Other related level 2 qualifications

On successful completion, a learner can progress within employment and/or continue their study in the same, or related area.
