Health & Social Care Curriculum

Curriculum Statement

Health and social care gives a hands on approach to learning the foundation skills needed when dealing with various different service users in a number of different health and social care settings. Learners learn the care values that underpin the work of the NHS and care practitioners in numerous settings. Communication skills are needed in all care settings and learners develop these skills in order to understand how to communicate appropriately one to one and in group settings. Basic anatomy gives learners the understanding of body systems and how these impact on health issues. In all care settings, basic first aid is important and learners get to put this into action.
