What is the AMSPAR qualification

The AMSPAR Level 5 Primary Care and Health Management Diploma is designed for people working in the health sector and its assessments are designed to initiate change and improve the service you provide. It equips participants with a range of management tools and techniques that can be applied effectively in the workplace.


Awarding bodies

The programme is accredited by both AMSPAR and the ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) providing participants professional qualifications in management at Level 5.

For those who have limited time but still want a qualification we also offer a Certificate or Award level under the ILM Awarding body. These levels require less attendance and assessment and can be topped up to the Diploma at a later date. These options are particularly useful for people supervising staff for the first time.

Programme Delivery: Blended

We understand the difficulty balancing work, family and personal development. So we’ve adopted a blended approach to the delivery of our AMSPAR programmes.


Workshops are a great way to meet and interact with other students during role plays, case studies and group activities. We run workshops across the country weekends and week days.


Cherith Simmons have developed an innovative learning platform, FlexiLearner, to deliver 24/7 access to learning material, assignment guidance, an online chat room and instant access to grades once marked by one of our certified markers.

Distance Learning

For those who find it difficult to take time out and attend workshops we offer the option to complete the programme through distance learning. Gain the AMSPAR qualification from anywhere supported by online learning activities, live webinars and online tutor support. This is ideal for the time strapped participant.
