Health & Social Care


Through Studying BTEC Health and Social care learners will gain knowledge and understanding of:

  • How people grow and develop over the course of their lives from infancy to old age, and the factors that may affect development, such as diet, relationships, poverty or wealth.
  • The impact of major life events like marriage or parenthood.  Learners will analyse these impacts from a positive and negative viewpoint, demonstrating empathy.  Learners will understand how people adapt to these changes and the support that is available to them. 
  • The range of local Health and Social Care Services, and how they may meet individual needs, as well as barriers that may make it harder to use these services. 

Students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate and apply the key care values, such as dignity and respect for others, to real life scenarios. Students will understand how to analyse and interpret lifestyle and physiological data, and be able to design appropriate health and well-being improvement plans. Students will also develop skills that are essential for careers in both HSC and the wider employment market generally. These include verbal and written communication, team working, working from a prescribed brief, working to deadlines, presenting information effectively, as well as accurately completing administrative tasks and processes.
