Health & Social Care is a vocational subject, taught for one day each week in a mixed ability option block.
We follow the BTEC Level 2 Diploma. This specification consists of eight units all of which are tutor assessed throughout the duration of the course;
For each unit students will be awarded a Pass, Merit or Distinction based on several pieces of student created work; their final assessment will be based on the overall level of work they have produced during the course. There are NO exams for this course.
All students will complete a work placement over 6 weeks in a local health, social care or early years setting.
Students are welcome to arrange meetings with staff to discuss and aspects of the course they don’t understand or require help to complete. One-to-one tutorials are provided to ensure portfolios are up-to-date, complete and of a high standard.
Students should expect to be set at least one home learning per week, which should take approximately 45 minutes to complete.
Students will require a lever-arch folder and subject divider and will be expected to attend lessons with appropriate equipment, their folder and any resources they have been provided with. A USB pen drive would also be useful, but not essential.
