BTEC Health and Social Care

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.

Students follow a programme of study preparing them to complete internally assessed assignments and examinations based on the knowledge and understanding that they develop.
