This course is a coherent study of the health and social care sector and supports progression to a HE university degree in a related subject; these include nursing, midwifery, paramedic science, social work, occupational therapy, teaching and many more. It could also lead to an apprenticeship in the sector for those who wish to go straight out into practice to work as care/ support workers.
This qualification is equivalent to three A Levels. Learners will have the necessary UCAS points to progress in Health and Social Care related higher education courses, a Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care, or work in practice if they choose to do so.
