This qualification aims to develop your knowledge and awareness of health and social care in a young person's setting. It is ideal if you wish to develop an understanding of the similarities and differences in these settings, and many of the roles and responsibilities that go with it.
You will also begin to develop your practical skills, alongside your course work with guidance from our expert tutors.
Furthermore, you will also have the opportunity to develop your maths and English skills by completing a Functional Skills qualification.
On completion of this course, many of our students progress onto a Level 2 qualification in either childcare or health and social care.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation and with health and safety of our students as a priority, we have redesigned this course to include a mixture of classroom-based and online learning.
