Subject Information

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.
