Health and Social Care

Course Director Karen Woosey

At St Anne’s we pride ourselves with the superb results our pupils achieve in Health and Social Care. Health and Social Care is a vocational subject taught at Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. Currently, at Key Stage 4, students study for the OCR Cambridge National in Health and Social, and for the Level 3 Diploma in Sixth Form, equivalent to two A Levels.

Cambridge National Certificate Level 1/2 includes a one hour exam and three pieces of coursework to be completed over the duration of the course which begins at the start of year 10 and ends at the end of year 11.

The course covers a range of topics surrounding health and social care.

Topics include:

  1. Communicating and working with other.
  2. Essential Values of Care. (External Examination )
  1. Understanding the life stages.
  1. Nutrition for good health

Understanding the life stages is the study of human development from conception to old age and of the many factors that shape and influence that development, such as nutrition, household income and personal relationships.

Students learn about the principles of care which workers in health and social care occupations should follow, including maintaining confidentiality and dignity of all those using the services. Understanding legislation, codes of practice, health and safety and individual rights are also studied, along with gaining understanding of how services are regulated and form part of a national framework of care.

The qualification is designed to give young people a "hands on” approach and through challenging materials will encourage the high attaining learners. During this process learners will develop transferable skills that will equip and prepare them ready for the world of work or onto further study.
