Specialist qualifications are qualifications from Entry to level 3 on the Qualifications
and Credit Framework (QCF). They are work-related qualifications and are available
in a range of sectors. They give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills
they need to prepare for employment. They also provide career development
opportunities for those already in work. These qualifications may be full time or
part time courses in schools or colleges. Training centres and employers may also
offer these qualifications.
Some Specialist qualifications are knowledge components in Apprenticeship
Frameworks (previously known as 'Technical Certificates').
There are three sizes of Specialist qualification in the QCF:
Award (1 to 12 credits)
Certificate (13 to 36 credits)
Diploma (37 credits and above).

E3/ L1 introduction to health and social care sector, for students to get an insight to working within the sector
To develop the learner's understanding of the skills and knowledge that underpin the qualification and help them move on to employment
