If you can read and write well enough to complete a job application, and have a good grasp of basic maths (add, subtract and divide) you should have no problems. The learning materials are written in simple everyday language and the answers to your assignments will be completed in the same style. In addition to the comprehensive learning materials provided, you will receive a Study Guide to assist you, and, of course, you will have the support of your tutor.

What will I cover?

Your studies will cover the areas of study listed above through detailed exploration of the subject matter. You will also receive tasks and prompts for further personal exploration and research to carry out so that you can gauge how much you have learned. There are plenty of examples to help you but personal research is a prerequisite, so be prepared to use your initiative to fully answer the assignments.

Is it accredited?

Although the learning materials are comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

Your work is not graded; assignments are simply identified as Pass, Fail or Referred. For assignments not passed at first attempt, your tutor will advise on the improvements to be made to obtain a Pass on a reworking. A certificate of achievement will be issued by Focus Awards on successful completion of all the assignments.

What will my studies prepare me for?

If I fail an assignment can I retake it?

Yes, your tutor will ask you to resubmit your assignment and give you some pointers as to where you could improve.

How do I send in my work?

You email your assignments one at a time for marking. This enables your tutor to properly assess the standard and style of your work for each section, and give you feedback which will be used on your next assignment; a process of continuous improvement. On obtaining feedback and comment you will either move on to the next assignment or review and rework the one you submitted.

What do I receive once I enrol?

You will receive login details to our Online Student Community. Here you will be able to access your course materials, contact your tutor, submit your work, and interact with other learners via the online forums.

Is there a time limit or any deadlines?

Is there a word count for my assignments?

Although a word count is not given for the tutor marked assignments, it is important that you demonstrate to your tutor that you have fully understood the questions; a comprehensive Study Guide is included with your materials. Many students start slowly at first, but your tutor will give guidance to help and encourage you to improve.

Do I need a computer to complete my studies?

Yes, you will need access to email and the internet to access your materials, submit assignments and do research. Most students also find word-processing their assignments is much more convenient than writing by hand.

What is leadership and management in care?

Leadership and management in care is the responsibility and managing of staff such as care assistants. Management in care can take place in the community or in a care home.

Why did you decide to work in management in care?

I had worked in the same care home for five years. I thoroughly enjoyed my job working with elderly people. I had already taken my NVQ level 2 in Caring and within the five years of working in the care home I had already had a promotion to supervisor of a small group of other care assistants.

A management position had come open within the care home and it was my own manager that routed for me to apply for the position as she said I had natural leadership skills. I applied for the job on the basis I was willing to take my management training. I luckily got the position and was promoted to manager.

What does a manager in care do on a day to day basis?

As a manager in a care home you would be responsible for how the care home is run on a day to day basis. This would include delegation of responsibility and duties to different members of staff and ensuring they were completing tasks as they should be. It would also involve working with the residents within the home providing the right information and advice to them as well as their families, promoting the residents right and responsibilities and encouraging those living in the home to join in activities.

What are the entry requirements to work in management in care?

You would need specific knowledge, skills and experience in order to become a manager within a care home. You may be offered a mangers position due to promotion or if you have the relevant qualification such as Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services.

What can I expect to earn as a manager in a care home?

Starting salaries can be between £20,000 - £30,000 a year.

Experience managers can earn up to £45,000 a year.
