"Working together to make everything better"

Health and Social Care

Health and Social Care is an Option subject, studied in Years 10 and 11. Students follow the Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Health and Social Care, which is assessed through both coursework and external exam - taken in the spring or summer of Y11.

Students are required to complete and achieve all three components in the qualification.

  1. Human Lifespan Development
  2. Health and Social Care Services and Values
  3. Health and Wellbeing

Components 1 and 2 are assessed through internal assessment involving assignments that are assessed by the teacher but monitored by the exam board. Component 3 is the externally-assessed examination. Learners will have 2 hours to complete a formal written task. Each component is worth 60 marks and is equally weighted towards the final grade.
