What will I study?
You will study up to four subjects:
- Units in health and social care (one unit at level 2 and one unit at level 3)
- GCSE Human Biology
- GCSE English (if you have achieved grade 3)
- GCSE maths (if you have achieved grade 3)
What do I need to join?
GCSE maths, science and English at grade 3. You will also need another two GCSE subjects at grade 4.
You need a positive attitude towards working with people of all ages. You will have a commitment to attendance, being punctual and working in a team as well as independently.
How will I learn?
Classroom study will be used to teach you in an informative and interactive way. Support will be provided online and face to-face. During your placement you will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills that you have learnt in the classroom, whilst being supervised by experienced practitioners and teachers.
You will need to complete a minimum of 36 hours work experience in a health and social care setting. Most learners will achieve more hours, which enhances future employability.
What can I do next?
Successful completion of all elements of the level 2 transition programme including a minimum of a grade 4 for English language, science and maths will enable you to apply for the Level 3 Certificate / Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care.
Successful completion of all elements of the level 2 transition programme including a minimum of a grade 5 for English language, science and maths will enable you to apply for the T Level in Health.
Alternatively, you may wish to continue training whilst working (e.g. via an apprenticeship or other work-based learning programme).
What are my career options?
The skills and knowledge gained on this course will aid progression to further study and/or prepare you to enter the workplace. In the health and social care sector, typical employment opportunities may be as an apprentice or in a support work / health care role, (depending on specific job requirements and age restrictions).
How will I know how I am doing?
You will be continuously assessed through class work.
Health and social care units are achieved by completion of assignments which are internally assessed.
You will take exams for each of the GCSE subjects.
Supervisors will complete a report about your time in placement. The assessment tasks will develop your ability to respond to real life situations that you may face when in employment.
Are there any extra costs?
There will also be costs for optional day trips within the UK, as well as payment for your DBS check (£51.60 in 2021 – cost for 2022 to be confirmed). You will need to purchase a course text book for health and social care and another human biology. Each book costs around £30.
