What's it all about?

We’re all about Social Care 

Health & Social Care focuses on equipping students with the knowledge and understanding required within the Health and Social Care sector. It's an ideal choice for those students looking to study a vocational subject and it is a useful qualification for any student considering a career as a medical professional.

Communication, problem solving and analysis are all key skills covered. There is the need to work in group situations and also to think independently and creatively. Students are taught about the different areas of care and how to apply them to real life scenarios, alongside the development of the human body across Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Social areas.

Health & Social Care is offered as a BTEC qualification which is equal to a single GCSE.
