Health & Social Care Level 2 BTEC at The Open Academy

Course description

Are you interested in working in the care sector? Do you want to look after children, go into nursing or midwifery? If you did not get enough GCSEs to progress to A Levels then this is the perfect stepping stone for you to gain the skills and qualifications to move onto a level 3 course, apprenticeship or employment.

The course is equivalent to four GCSE grades A*-C. Work placements with children in schools and nurseries allow you to experience the real work environment.

Entry requirements

Students following level 2 courses will need 5 Ds or above. Appropriate students will also be able to select one level 3 BTEC course.
