Level 3 Diploma in Management Principles (healthcare)

This qualification is ideal in developing your leadership and management qualities for the healthcare sector. It’s particularly suited to those who seek to move up to the next level of management and gain access to higher education.

The course certificate is a generic diploma; however, we have amended the content to suit the healthcare. We would also expect the learner to bring healthcare related case studies to their answers to help develop their knowledge in the sector.

The ICQ Level 3 Diploma in Management Principles will assess knowledge while building and developing new skills. Our assessments on the course will start with question and answer submissions before moving into mini essays and full assignments. We have chosen this approach to gradually develop while stretching and challenging you. Your work will also need to combine critical thinking and elements of academic research; you will be developed these skills while on the course.
