This is a two year A Level course during which you will learn about health and well-being, human behaviour and safeguarding children. You will study care services including traditional and holistic therapies and examine the rights and responsibilities of both service users and service providers. You will also investigate the importance of communication in care settings and how positive care can be promoted. Through practical activities, you will apply your knowledge and understanding to work-related contexts and develop research, evaluation and problem-solving skills.
Assessment includes a range of written and practical based activities. Work experience placement is a requirement of the programme and there is also opportunity to complete your Essential Skills in Literacy, Numeracy and ICT as required. Students may wish to combine this double award AS/A2 with a further AS/A2 programme, in order to maximise their opportunities for progression. This programme of study is likely to include enrichment units which are an additional component to enhance your employability.
