Health and Social Care

Health and Social Care is delivered through work-related contexts, allowing students to develop an understanding of the diverse and complex nature of the Health and Social Care sector.

Key Stage 4 GCSE is offered over a two year course.  It comprises of 2 units of work:

  • Unit 1 – Understanding personal development and relationships
  • Unit 2 – Exploring health, social care and early years provision

The method of assessment for unit 1 is a written examination of 75 minutes. Unit 2 is the production of a controlled assessment portfolio under controlled conditions.

It is expected, and necessary for success, that research for unit 2 is carried out in the students own time.
