BTEC Health and Social Care is a Key Stage 4 course only.
From September 2019, Haygrove School are introducing a new Key Stage 4 qualification in health and social care: BTEC Health and Social Care Level 2.
This is a brand new qualification for Haygrove School. The course gives students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in three main areas, each given equal importance:
Human Lifespan Development
Understanding human growth and development across life stages and the factors that affect it. Investigating how individuals deal with life events.
Health and Social Care Services and Values
Service users and service providers. You might know someone who needs social care, this is very different from health care but both are closely linked.
Health and Well-being
Factors which can have a positive or negative influence on a person’s health and wellbeing. Interpreting lifestyle indicators and what they mean for someone’s state of health. Exploring the difficulties people may face when trying to make changes to lifestyle.
This vocational course is a good introduction for anyone who is interested in a career caring for others in a health or social care setting and preparation for a Health and Social Care Level 3 course at a post-16 college.
