Y10 Health and Social Care

Level 2 Technical Award in Health and Social Care

This new and exciting Level 2 Technical Award in Health and Social is aimed at students who have an interest in developing the skills and learning the theory to prepare them for further study or employment in the health and social care sector. It is practical in nature with 2 units  being internally assessed and 1 being externally assessed with an exam.

The qualification has 60% coursework which has historically suited students at UVHS.

Unit 1  Improving the wellbeing of an individual 30%

Learners chose a client and carry out a range of health tests to assess their health.  They will then produce and implement  a health plan aimed at improving their client’s health.  They will review their plan and evaluate it’s success. This is meant to be a real experience so each student should chose their own client.

Unit 2  Promoting healthy living 30%

Learners will  research and evaluate existing health campaigns before planning , delivering and evaluating their own campaign.  They will work in small groups to do this. We will be looking to work with the school nurse and  Pastoral teams to make this a real experience and to promote healthy living within our own school community.

Unit 3 Examination 40%

This is the underpinning knowledge needed to run the two practical  units.  You will learn about the stages of growth and development, the expected milestones of development throughout each life stage and the events which may have an impact on this development.  You will also learn about the health and social care professionals who will support  an individual throughout
