The overall objective of this project is to develop, deliver (through a blended approach) and evaluate the roll out of the HABC Level 5 Certificate in Principles of Commissioning for Wellbeing (FQF) to meet the needs of commissioners within London’s local authorities.
This introductory module provides attendees with an understanding of the key political and strategic issues involved with a view to undertaking high quality evidence-based commissioning for wellbeing. It provides both theoretical grounding and practical knowledge of core commissioning concepts, theories and techniques, enabling attendees to:
- Develop an understanding of the role of the commissioner for wellbeing and the broader commissioning process and policy context;
- Analyse and respond to the needs of a community;
- Understand and strategically inform the markets that support wellbeing for the whole population;
- Specify, procure and evaluate services that will deliver and improve person-centred outcomes;
- Develop a range of skills to effectively commission using the commissioning cycle;
- Prepare and equip those in commissioning roles to effectively commission in rapidly changing organisations; and
- Develop a CPD portfolio and ongoing update process.
Approach to delivery
It is recommended that the qualification is delivered by blended learning to include some face-to-face contact time. Total distance learning is not recommended as peer discussion between learners is important to provide learners with the opportunity to discuss and debate ideas in order to broaden their understanding of commissioning for wellbeing.
The total qualification time (TQT) is 168 hours, with 56 hours recommended as guided learning hours (GLH), approximately equivalent to a three to six-month programme. Total qualification time is based on the total number of hours that it would take an average learner to achieve and demonstrate the necessary level of attainment to be awarded with a qualification. This comprises two elements:
- Guided learning hours – recommended time spent under the immediate guidance or supervision of a tutor or assessor (including invigilated assessment)
- All other learning and assessment hours.
This delivery programme may be adjusted in accordance with learners’ needs and/or local circumstances.
Teaching sessions will take place over 14 days (am or pm).
