Health and Social Care

The Health and Social Care sector continues to evolve in line with government policy and national requirements. With an ageing population and less reliance on informal care, the demand for social care staff is increasing.

Our Health and Social Care qualifications are designed to provide pupils with the knowledge and skills needed to work with some of society’s most vulnerable people, including the elderly, children, and adults with learning difficulties.

Key Stage 4

The Level 2 Technical Award in Health and Social Care qualification is approved in the 2020 performance tables at Key Stage 4. This qualification will enable pupils to develop their knowledge and understanding of the Health and Social Care sector. 

The qualification covers:

  • an introduction to the health and social care sector
  • professional practice and the health and social care practitioner
  • human growth and development through the life stages.
