What's Involved

The content of the course has been designed to ensure it supports students with a keen interest in working in a health and social care role. Some units focus on how to support and care for individuals in different settings, as well as exploring current research and promoting public health. Other units provide students with the opportunity to gain an understanding of the biological or sociological topics relevant to the different parts of the sector.

Units covered include:

  • Human Lifespan Development (Exam)
  • Working in Health and Social Care (Exam)
  • Meeting Individual Care and Support Needs (Coursework)
  • Principles of Safe Practice
  • Psychological perspectives (coursework)
  • Caring for individuals with dementia (coursework)
  • Nutritional health (coursework)

Completion of this qualification is achieved through a mixture of classroom-based learning and experience in a Real Work Environment. All students complete a mandatory work placement for one day on alternate weeks throughout the course. There is a placement coordinator who allocates placements in care homes, special educational need provision and other Health and Social Care settings.

Entry Requirements

5 GCSEs grade 9 – 4, including English Language and Maths, a satisfactory interview and a satisfactory DBS (formerly CRB) check.
