Health and Social Care

Year 10, 11, 12 and 13

As a subject health and social care helps students develop a range of personal and professional skills as well as attitudes and techniques for further study or employment application.

Students will achieve a qualification that will contribute to their future plans. This qualification helps to stimulate and motivate students to achieve their full potential through practical activities and written assessments. The practical activities will give students a taste of the vocational sector and enable theory to form a link to practice.

The course is delivered using a variety of methods including practical assessments and written tasks, class discussions, presentations, visiting speakers and visits out of school to a variety of care settings.

To gain the level 1/2 qualification students will complete assessments for one mandatory unit, two optional units of work and an exam unit.

To gain the level 3 qualification students must complete assignment tasks for one mandatory unit and one optional unit plus two external examination units.

The mandatory and optional units at both levels will be internally assessed and then externally moderated.
