The New QCF Replaces The Old NVQ Framework.

The QCF in Health & Social Care has now replaced the old NVQ Health & Social Care standards and is a new way of recognising skills and qualifications. It does this by awarding credit for units.

The Levels 2-3 Diplomas in Health and Social Care are aimed at individuals working with adults and children across all social care settings. The qualifications provide specialist routes for learning disabilities or dementia care.
The Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services is aimed at individuals who lead social care provision in an adult or a children and young people’s setting, either as managers of the provision or as senior practitioners.

The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is a new system that replaced the existing National Qualifications Framework (NQF) with effect from 1st January 2011 (for NVQ L2 and L3) and from 1st April 2011 for NVQ L4 and the LMC (the two will be combined to form a new award called the QCF Diploma Level 5). It is a new way of recognising skills and qualifications, by awarding credit for qualifications and units (small steps of learning). It enables people to gain qualifications at their own pace along flexible route
