Please be aware that this course has four extended wring assignments which are worth a total of 60% of the pupil’s final grade. We work to tight exam board deadlines and therefore it is essential that these assignments are completed in the given timeframe. Failure to meet these deadlines will affect the pupil’s final grade. Pupils will be expected to participate in a variety of visits to local health and social care providers in order to experience how skills learnt in the classroom can be transferred into a real life setting.
There are various careers in health and social care, and childcare. Here are some examples:

“Surprised how many different health and social care careers there are in the NHS”
(Hospital careers event)
