Welcome to Health & Social Care
'The greatest wealth is health' - Virgil
Health and Social Care is an essential aspect of our society. It impacts on you from the day you are born until the day you die. We regularly invite guest speakers to school and arrange visits to Health and Social care settings in the area. We strive to create opportunities for our Health & Social Care students, and encourage them to contribute to the school and the local community. They have arranged work experience, planned a Christmas party, an event for teenagers with severe disabilities and have developed their own health promotion campaign.
Key Stage 4:
In our BTEC Level 2 course, we investigate essential aspects of Health and Social Care. In the Level 2 course, we offer in the first instance the Award (4 units) and upon achievement of this, progression to the Certificate (8 units). The course consists of ¾’s coursework units and ¼ exam units which means it involves constant hard work of a high quality, together with creativity and a passion to make a difference.
