General Explanation
The Qualification and Credit Framework is a flexible, ‘mix and match’ approach to gaining qualifications. Every unit and qualification has both a credit value and a level. The credit value shows approximately how much time it takes to complete. The level shows how difficult the unit or qualification is. In adult social care there are vocational qualifications/units from level 1 through to level 7.

There are three sizes of qualification:

Award (1-12 credits)
Certificate (13-36 credits)
Diploma (above 36 credits)

In order to obtain a Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care you will need 46 credits for a Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care you will need 58 credits. At both level 2 and level 3 there are mandatory units and optional units; you can also choose to follow specific pathways:

Generic qualification
Dementia pathway
Learning Disability Pathway
When you have selected a pathway there are specific units that you need to do. More information about QCF awards can be found at:
