Hello and welcome to the February 2016 edition of the Health and Social Care update. 

I hope you had a good break and are looking forward to the term ahead.

Health and Social Care forums

There will be three Health and Social Care forums for Assessors and Internal Verifiers wanting to deliver diplomas and apprenticeships for Work Based Learning qualifications (not BTECs!). These are taking place across the country. The first is due to take place in Manchester on 11 April from 10.30 a.m. until 3.30 p.m. Two others will take place later in the year in October and November.
