Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for CCLD (Management) (Northern Ireland)

>27 Jan 2021

We currently offer the NCFE CACHE Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Children’s Care, Learning and Development (Management) (Northern Ireland) (603/6040/9) qualification, which is aimed at those in a Deputy Manager/Manager role.

The minimum entry requirement for age is 19 and a Children’s Care qualification at Level 3 is recommended but not a requirement.  Learners must be in a position that enables substantial opportunity to lead and manage services and teams over the duration of the qualification.

This qualification is not suitable for childminders or those undertaking a placement.


This qualification has been designed to:

  • Provide a broad understanding of the early years and childcare sector in Northern Ireland, to develop and enhance the practical skills and knowledge required to lead and manage these services;
  • enable learners to make an informed assessment of their own aptitude for work in this sector and to make informed decisions about their own careers, and that of others;
  • encourage learners to reach a level of knowledge, practical and technical skills to lead high-quality services based on a culture of inclusive child-centred and rights-based care for children under the age of 12; and,
  • encourage learners to value continued learning, to remain in the learning process and to champion the continued professional development of others.

In summary, candidates are required to attend master classes which focus on best practice in the early year’s sector, these are held via Zoom once a month, so there is no requirement to attend one of our centres.  Participants are each allocated an assessor who supports them on a one to one basis to focus on areas of development and to achieve the award.  Our assessors use digital assessment methods which will reduce the volume of written work and ensures confidentiality throughout the process as no paperwork has to leave the workplace.
