This qualification is designed for employees who are in their first-line-management role and who provide supervision, support and guidance to other staff. Examples of possible job titles include senior care workers, senior support workers and senior day-care workers in services for older people, mental health, home care and housing support. Candidates who have already undertaken an SQA qualification, for example the SVQ in Health and Social Care level 2 or 3, HNC in Health or Social Care, will be well placed to undertake this award for job specific training or for the purposes of CPD.

This PDA is made up of 16 SCQF credits at level 7. To gain the Award, candidates must complete the following 2 units:-

  • F6CX 34 Health and Social Care: Supervise People

This award will give you  more confidence in your supervision role, it will give you a range of transferable skills which will enable you to meet changing circumstances and patterns in your workplace. It will meet the needs of your continuing personal development and it will also give you an excellent qualification which is documentary proof of your knowledge and competence in this area and a great addition to your CV.

This award is taught by a mixture of independent and guided learning. This means you must be able to attend a half day workshop in our training centre once a fortnight for a minimum of 5-6 sessions. In between these sessions you will have some research/study/assignment work. Assessment is ongoing and will take the form of written reflective accounts and observation in the workplace. This award should take no more than 3-4 months but this depends on the amount of time a candidate is willing/able to spend on the work.
