Health and Social Care – Level 3

What will I study?

The course is over two years. You will have taught lessons, visits to local H & SC providers to help you understand the diverse needs of the community. You will learn about the human life span and what it means to work in Health care. You will learn about the many reasons why children and adults have individual needs and how you can meet these and support them in many H & SC settings.


What does it combine with?

This course works well with most other subjects and in particular sociology and psychology. You will be applying theories to people in Health & Social Care settings and therefore will need a good level of literacy. You may combine English with this qualification.


What can it lead on to?

You could follow this qualification by going into the world of work – career opportunities could be in the care sector- nursing homes, care home supporting people with learning disabilities. The work experience may help to show future courses or work places that you have had experience in the work place and know how to present yourself and behave professionally.
