Do you have the desire to work with people in a range of health, social care or educational settings? Are you approachable, willing, trustworthy and enthusiastic? If so, a Level 2 BTEC First Certificate in Health and Social Care may be the course for you!
At Level 2 we offer the BTEC First Certificate, which is designed to embed alongside two GCSE re-sits. For those students re-sitting one GCSE, they will complete 70 hours placement with clients who receive care and support. The appropriate Level 2 course for you will be confirmed during enrolment.
If you choose to study the BTEC Level 2 course, you will study a range of different units each focusing on different aspects of health and social care. This will include Effective Communication, Human Lifespan Development, Health and Social Care Values and Healthy Living, along with other additional units that may include Individual Rights, Individual Needs, Health and Well-being, and Nutrition.
On successful completion of the BTEC First Certificate you may progress on to the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care or other BTEC Level 3 course offered at the college or alternatively an apprenticeship or training position.
