Course Information

BTEC Health and Social Care is designed for anyone who is passionate about caring for others and making a difference in the community.

We use a variety of techniques to develop and enhance students’ caring and interpersonal skills and qualities, from traditional classroom teaching, to practical assessments, debates, demonstrations, and visits from guest speakers in the health care professions.
