Health and Social Care
What is Health and Social Care?
As a subject, Health and Social Care (H&SC) combines elements of sociology, biology, nutrition, law, and ethics. Students of Health and Social Care will have a work placement alongside their academic studies; such a placement may take place in a nursery, residential home, hospital, or other caring establishment. Others may take a health and social care course as a route to further qualifications hoping that it will lead to employment within the sector.
Depending on their qualification, students may start off as care assistants and develop care to become doctors, nurses, social workers, physiotherapists, counsellors, psychotherapists, or a range of other related occupations.
Why choose a Level 2 BTEC Technical Award in Health and Social Care?
How does the course work?
The course is made up of three components: two internally assessed and one that’s externally assessed. Our three-block structure, explore, develop and apply, has been developed to allow students to build on and embed their knowledge. This allows them to grow in confidence and then put into practice what they have learned. Our assessment structure is also designed so that students can build on what they learn, and develop their assignment skills, as they move through the course.
