Year 13 Overview

(New  Spec)

Health and Social Care is a course which provides students with a broad understanding into the health and social care sector. It allows students to have a foundation for moving on to professions in this area, including midwifery, nursing, medicine, social work, youth work, teaching and more.

 

We also offer a BTEC course which can be taken as either a single or double subject.

 

 

A level

The year 12 A Level award consists of two units. The first is internally assessed through coursework based upon effective care and communication. The second unit is externally assessed through an examination on life as a challenge. This looks at various conditions and the cause and impact of these.

 

BTEC

 

A range of units are taught and can vary each year, but the core taught units include effective communication, equality, diversity and rights, anatomy and physiology, development through life stages, and health safety & security.

The year 13 A Level consists of two units. The first is an internally assessed piece of coursework in which students are required to investigate two different professions and produce research on these. The second is an externally assessed exam on food and fitness.
