TMDP Entry Requirements
The programme is aimed at team managers and aspiring managers, including senior practitioners, in
social care teams. Such teams can include integrated teams with health or education as well as social
work professionals. The programme is therefore suitable for other professionals, as well as social
workers, who manage or supervise qualified professionals e.g. community-based Occupational
Therapists. The course is, however, not appropriate for managers of provider services, such as
residential or day care services.
Please confirm that you meet the entry criteria for the qualification or contact if you do not:
I have a recognised professional qualification in social work (or similar for non-social work staff)
and registration with the Care Council for Wales (or equivalent body)
I have a minimum of three years post qualifying experience
I occupy a front line management or senior practitioner position in a social care setting (as
described above), or have been identified as an ‘emergent leader’ with impending career progression
I have some supervisory responsibilities of qualified professionals
I have the support of my line manager to undertake this qualification
