City and Guilds approve Diploma in Adult Care qualification in Northern Ireland

Written by The Editorial Team

The Northern Ireland Social Care Council (NISCC) has announced that the City and Guilds Level 4 Diploma in Adult Care (Northern Ireland) has been approved and is now on the City and Guilds list of approved qualifications for Northern Ireland.

The Level 4 Diploma in Adult Care will provide both a practice-based qualification for specific level 4 job roles and will act as a stepping stone towards more senior practice and management. It is particularly relevant for senior care/support staff, front line managers, assistant/deputy manager, team leader, area domiciliary care managers and senior day care workers.

The NISCC say they will continue to work closely with colleagues in the social care sector, FE Colleges and Awarding Organisations to ensure the new qualification meets the needs of the social care workforce and importantly equips staff with the training, skills and knowledge they need to provide quality care and support to the people they care and support.
