Social Health

 

About 3 million people in the UK work in the health and social care sectors, which is equivalent to 1 in every 10 people.  Demand for both health care and social care is likely to continue to rise due to the ageing population, so it is undisputable that it plays a key role in UK society.

Our aim is to provide opportunities for students to develop a broad knowledge and understanding of what is required for working in the health, social care and early years sectors. We aim to nurture every student through their journey to develop their communication skills, resilience, and independence, growing into well-rounded individuals who are able to succeed in today’s diverse society.

 

Curriculum Structure

We offer a curriculum that is fluid, dynamic and knowledge rich enabling students to builds on prior knowledge and experiences.  The course is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively developing knowledge and competencies for future learning whilst building upon students’ knowledge from Personal Development.

The BTECH tech aware in health and social care is assessed through a combination of external exams and internal coursework.
