Health and Social Care

Curriculum Intent

Our Health and Social Care curriculum is built on the understanding that students will be inspired to work in a sector which has significant impact on the health and well-being services users and that their ambition to promote excellence in standards of care will be fostered through exploring and experiencing roles within the health and social care sector.

We believe that when students embark on their Health and Social Care studies, their prior knowledge will be informed by core disciplines such as Science, English, Physical Education and Religious Studies.  Therefore, our curriculum creates time for students to apply subject specific knowledge, skills and concepts to different Health and Social Care contexts.

It is essential that students understand the latest industry requirements and have the opportunity to demonstrate work-ready skills.  Students will develop holistically to ensure they are adequately equipped with practical, interpersonal and thinking skills leading to their future success in employment and education.

By the time students complete their Health and Social Care qualification, their ability to research, extend their writing and meet deadlines will give them the experience needed for higher education.  Empathy and compassion will be developed along with a determination to make a difference.
