HEALTH & SOCIAL CARE
KS4 & KS5
The GCE in Health & Social Care is an ideal qualification for those students who want a broad background in health, social care and early years, which will allow them to progress to further or higher education or move into appropriate employment within the health and social care sector. The GCE in Health & Social Care has been designed to allow learners to develop an understanding of the diverse nature of the health & social care sector.

METHOD OF ASSESSMENT
Each unit is assessed by one method only – either an externally assessed written paper (E) or a portfolio (P) is built up from a number of assignments.
Students need to be self-motivated as extra effort and work are an integral part of the course.
An interest in the subject and a commitment to work are, however, the most desirable criteria.
