Introduction to Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Settings CACHE at Buxton & Leek College
This course will develop knowledge and awareness of the types of provision in these sectors
and the roles played by workers – from principles and values through to health and safety
and working with others. Learners may have an opportunity to undertake a placement in a
related real work environment.
The course is suitable for anyone considering a career in health and/or social care with adults
or children and young people.
You should be at least 14 years old and have at least 1 GCSE grade D in English Language and three GCSEs at grade E-F or above. You’ll also require a satisfactory reference.
Students will be assessed by their tutor or assessor using a range of methods. This could include tasks set by CACHE such as designing charts or leaflets, coursework or methods such as oral questioning.
The course does not qualify learners to work directly with adults, children or young people but does provide a starting point for deciding whether a career in the sector is right for them. On completion of the qualification, learners who wish to pursue a career may progress to other Level 2 qualifications such as the Level 2 Diploma in Health & Social Care or the Level 2 Certificate in an Introduction to Early Years Education & Care.
