It can also be accessed by suitably qualified applicants from third sector organisations, for example charities or private enterprise. It facilitates multiprofessional learning and enables the cross fertilisation of knowledge and skills.

It enables the professional to apply learning and experience to the development of multiprofessional work based learning opportunities for students/junior members of staff and also to utilise their skills in the supervision and mentorship of students from a range of the health and social care settings.

The award aims to develop communication, analytical, judgment, evaluation, planning and organisational skills together with the knowledge, training and experience to support continuing professional development (CPD) and the development of career pathways.
