Unconditional Places to Full-Time Applicants

Due to the uncertainty around how long the Covid-19 outbreak will last, it has been agreed for the immediate future that we will be offering unconditional places to full-time (not University Level) applicants who apply to SGS College.

Once you apply for your course, you will receive a communication offering you a place.

You just need to accept the offer, if you wish to.

We will then be in touch to discuss the offer once the Covid-19 risk reduces.



This Level 2 qualification is designed to provide learners with the knowledge and skills required to enter the health and social care industry upon completion, or to progress onto a Level 3 qualification.

You will study a range of common physical and emotional health conditions (for example, sensory loss, dementia, mental health issues and disabilities). You will also study a mandatory unit: understand how to contribute to monitoring the health of individuals affected by health conditions.

How will I know how I am doing?

You will be continuously assessed through your assignment tasks. Assignments are set throughout the year, so you will know how well you are doing, with regular one-to-one feedback from your tutor and formal feedback on your assessments on TEAMS.

What do I need to join?

1 GCSE at grade 3 in Maths or English Language (with grade 2 for the other subject), plus a further 2 GCSEs at grade 3. You will also need DBS clearance and a good academic reference.

Maths & English

Learners can study a maximum of 2 GCSEs alongside the Certificate in Common Health Conditions. Learners with a grade 3 (D) in Maths and/or English are required to retake the qualification, and this will be taught alongside their vocational qualification. Learners with a grade 2 (E) or below in Maths will study functional skills alongside their vocational qualification.


This course provides you with the knowledge needed to work with children, young people and adults in a health or social care setting. This is suitable for career development opportunities for those already working in the sector.

Work Experience

All learners on the HSC pathway are required to complete a DBS check. Learners will complete a placement for 1 day a week and 1 block week in a relevant setting.

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete the qualification can go into employment or progress onto a Level 3 qualification, provided that they meet the required progression criteria. Alternatively, learners can apply for an apprenticeship in a related field.

What are my career options?

After completing this course, you could get an apprenticeship or employment in a variety of health and social care settings.
