DHC is the Diploma in home-based childcare...a level 3 qualification. It is made up of 5 units..DHC 1, DHC2...etc

DHC1 is the same as Introduction to Childminding Practice (ICP).

If you already have the ICP (which I presume you do, if you are already a childminder?) then you do units 2-5 of the DHC to complete the Diploma. If not you do units 1-5 for the full diploma.

Hope this helps you.
