Health and Social Care (Social Work) Extended Diploma at Lytham Sixth Form College
This industry-focused programme was developed through extensive consultation between our curriculum team and local employers. It features a variety of core and specialist modules, including Anatomy and Physiology, Physiology of Fluid Balance, Communication, Counselling, and Equality and Diversity, to provide the knowledge and skills needed for students to progress to a career in social work. Time spent in the classroom will be supplemented by a 1-2 day work placement to help with students’ professional development. On successful completion, students will be equipped to progress to a relevant undergraduate programme, including our BA (Hons) Professional Practice in Health and Social Care.
5 GCSEs at grade C or above, including English and Maths. (Students with a grade D in English or Maths will be accepted, but must study this GCSE alongside this programme.) Applicants will also need to pass a DBS check.
Extended Diplomas are coursework rather than exam based.
