    I am interested in the Level 7 diploma in health and social care management however I do not have an undergraduate degree. I completed one year of my undergrad and then started working.

    I have however over 12 years of professional working experience including 7 years of management level experience. For the past 5 years I have been working in the social care sector and would like to study for a relevant degree programme at masters level.

    I await your response.

    I am in the process of making a career change and would like to know if l am eligible for the level 7 Diploma course in Health and Social Care Management and how it would help me to get to more senior positions within the health and social care sector.

    I am a management accountant by profession with about 12 years experience of working within both the private and public sectors. I am a holder of a Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA) from Herii Watt University in Edinburgh. I also have a Diploma in Management Accounting from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountancy (CIMA).

    During the past two years following redundancy from my last assignment as management accountant, I have worked as a support worker within adult services in the private sector, with individuals with intellectual disabilities from the age of 18. I have worked with individuals who have complex needs such as pervasive development disorders like Autistim and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder Syndrome. I have also worked with individuals with clinical health conditions like epilepsy and chromosomal disorders like Down’s Syndrome.
