Health and Social Care Qualifications

The ATHE Health and Social Care Management Qualifications were designed for managers in various types of organisations including hospitals and care homes in both the public and private sector.

Whilst the core competencies were drawn from the British healthcare system it has also been carefully considered that many managers may wish to use these qualifications abroad and so international aspects of healthcare policy and practice have also been included.

ATHE encourages centres to combine the study of ATHE qualifications with a work placement relevant to the unit the learners are studying. All assignments must still be assessed in accordance with the guidelines set out in the Delivering ATHE Qualifications Handbook.

 

Progression Routes

These qualifications can be topped up to an honours degree or an MSc. Topping-up to a degree will typically take between six and twelve months of further study depending on what degree you want to do. Part-time/distance courses are also available.

 

Qualification Specifications

Each of our qualifications’ details are contained within a qualification specification document which includes the learning outcomes, assessment criteria, indicative content and further information.
