Health and Social Care - Level 1/2 at Cordeaux Academy

Course description

This Level 1 or 2 course is a one year option for those students who wish to gain formal

qualifications or improve their Level 2 profile. Students who have completed a Level 2 Certificate or Extended Certificate may wish to extend that qualification into a full Diploma over the year, whilst improving their GCSE English, Maths and Science grades. Students for the Level 2 course must be willing and able to undertake a 15 week day release placement as part of the course. A Level 1 option may be possible for Foundation Learning (FL) students who wish to work in the health and social care industry. The FL route will normally require students to undertake a weekly placement, therefore candidates must be willing and able to do this.

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for Level 1 or 2 courses, though a Level 2 Literacy

qualification would be beneficial for those undertaking Level 2 Health and Social Care. A willingness to undertake work placements is essential.

Future opportunities

These qualifications provide a general

preparation for employment in a number of health and care sectors as well as a route into further education.
