Students will be expected to have achieved a Grade 6 (B) or above in English Language or Literature at GCSE.
With the demographics in the UK changing rapidly and the population living longer, the health and social care sectors will experience huge growth over the next few years. Cambridge Technicals at Level 3 offer students a broad and in-depth foundation for either the modern workplace or further studies. This course prepares students for the challenges they’ll face in Higher Education or employment.
Designed in collaboration with experts spanning the breadth of the sector, it focuses on the skills, knowledge and understanding that today’s universities and employers demand. You will practically apply skills and knowledge in preparation for further study or the workplace. You will develop professional and personal skills through interaction with people who either work in the sector or require care or support, as well as theoretical knowledge and understanding to underpin your skills. This will allow you to offer specific, person-centred care and support and build positive relationships with the people you are working with, so that their needs and requirements are met whilst they maintain control of their own care and support. You will consider the real impacts to people living with conditions or illnesses such as the social, financial and psychological.
All assessment is through coursework, there are no formal examinations. 36 different units are available for specialist study.
Health & Social Care offers specialist pathways into health science, social care and support, and working with children and young people.
