BTEC Health and Social Care
Health and Social Care provides students with the opportunity to acquire key knowledge whilst applying their learning to work related contexts, and to gain the skills they need for further study and employment.
This is achieved through a course structure that allows students to build on and embed their knowledge and to grow in confidence when putting their learning into practice.
How will I be assessed?
Human Lifespan Development (Component 1 EXPLORE) is the first component studied and underpins the learning in Components 2 and 3. Component 1 is internally assessed through the completion of 2 assignments and represents 30% of the total course.
Services and Values (Component 2 DEVELOP) is delivered second and links closely to Component 1 by building upon the key knowledge and skills previously explored. Component 2 is internally assessed through the completion of 2 assignments and represents 30% of the total course.
Health and Wellbeing (Component 3 APPLY) is studied after the other components. Component 3 is externally assessed and synoptic, so builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills acquired and developed in Components 1 and 2. It represents 40% of the total course.
