BTEC Health and Social Care
BTEC Health and Social Care is designed for anyone who is passionate about caring for others and making a difference in the community.
We use a variety of techniques to develop and enhance students' caring and interpersonal skills and qualities, from traditional classroom teaching, to practical assessments, debates, demonstrations, and visits from guest speakers in the health care professions.
Students follow a programme of study preparing them to complete internally assessed assignments and examinations based on the knowledge and understanding that they develop.
Students’ are encouraged to participate in a weekly volunteering placement- allowing them to enhance their understanding whilst providing valuable practical experience of the care sector.
Students will study eight units:
- Human Lifespan Development
- Working in Health and Social Care
- Meeting Individual Care and Support Needs
- Principles of Safe Practice in Health and Social Care
- Enquiries into Current Research in Health and Social Care
- Promoting Public Health
- Nutritional Health
- Physiological Disorders and their Care
