The BTEC Health and Social Care programme is aimed to support our learners to succeed and progress in their education.
The course has been developed to:
Give learners a more focused understanding of health and social care through the selection of optional specialist units.
Give learners the opportunity to develop a range of personal skills and techniques, through the selection of units that are essential for successful performance in working life.
Give opportunities for learners to achieve a nationally recognised Level 2 Health and Social Care qualification.
Support progression into a more specialised Level 3 vocational or academic course or into an apprenticeship.
Why study Health and Social Care?
On successful completion of the BTEC First Certificate students may progress on to the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care or other BTEC Level 3 course, or alternatively an apprenticeship or training position. This course could, thereafter, lead to careers such as:
- Social Work
- Mental Health
- Support Work
- Youth and Community Work
