Health and Social Care
At CP Riverside, respect, confidence, acceptance and positivity are our core values and the BTEC L2 Health and Social Care Award embodies these values along with compassion, empathy, commitment and empowerment as the study of care values is at the heart of the qualification. These values are vital to ensuring students become empowering, tolerant and educated citizens that contribute positively to society. The curriculum’s intent is for students to study how we as humans grow and develop and the factors that can help and hinder that development. This learning is fundamental to improving the health and wellbeing of our students as well as giving them a deeper understanding of some of the influences and barriers to health.
As the course is vocational, it takes an engaging and practical approach to assessment. Students will examine care values in practical settings and be encouraged to work as part of a team in small group work as well as independently to develop their own employability skills.
The course is sequenced so that students can not only be assessed by an exam but also learn how to effectively write assignments which helps prepare them for FE. The pandemic has highlighted just how vital the need is for health professionals and that the health and social care industry is in high demand for future nurses, social workers and personal carers. The qualification is an inspiring course that gives students the opportunity to explore a wide range of caring professions and can sow seeds of aspiration of FE and HE pathways within the healthcare field.
