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.
- Human Lifespan Development
- Health and Social Care Services and Values
- 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.
