Shortlist

Course Overview
The course has been developed for individuals working in, or intending to work, in the Health and Social Care sector.

You will complete the Core qualification alongside a City and Guilds Employability level 2 qualification.

The qualification will provide a thorough introduction to the principles, values and knowledge needed to work in the Health and Social Care sectors with adults and children and young people.

The content for the Core and Employability qualification includes the following themes:
● principles and values
● health and wellbeing
● professional practice
● safeguarding
● health and safety

The Principles and Context includes two mandatory units covering current topics including:
● Growth and development
● The role and responsibilities of workers in the health and social care sector
● The role and purpose of promoting health and well-being

You will experience sector engagement experiences and have the opportunity to attend a placement during the academic year.
The Core qualification is assessed through a series of internally assessed tasks which can be taken throughout the qualification or at its end. There is one externally marked multiple choice question paper.

The Principles and Context qualification is assessed by one externally set and marked written examination and one internally assessed assignment. The assignment will require you to draw on your sector engagement and work placement experiences.
4 GCSEs at grade D/3 or above, which must be in English Language/Welsh (1st Language) and Maths. You must be able to demonstrate the potential to work independently and safely in health and social care settings.

Progression learners will need to demonstrate they have achieved at least a Level 1 ESW for English and Maths if they have not achieved their D’s in GCSE.

At Coleg Cambria we would encourage you to do the very best that you can in your exams. The better your grades the more options you will have, and may result in you gaining entry onto a higher level course.
Completion of the Level 2 Health and Social Care: Principles and Contexts qualification could lead to:

● Level 3 in Health and Social Care: Principles and Contexts
● Advanced GCE in Health and Social Care, and Childcare.
● Level 3 Health and Social Care: Practice

The most relevant pathway will depend upon the outcome achieved within this qualification and others taken alongside.
This course will require learners to purchase a uniform.
