Course description

Unit F910 - Promoting Quality Care.
In this unit we explore the factors that contribute to promoting quality care within health, social care and early
years settings. Topics include: the effect of attitudes and prejudice on those using services; rights and
responsibilities of people who use services and providers; access to services and the application of care
Unit F911 - Communication in Care Settings
Investigates the different types of communication skills used in care settings and students find out how
effective communication values individuals and promotes health and well-being. Students have the opportunity
to learn and practise communication skills with people who use services and/or practitioners.
Unit F912 - Promoting Good Health
Considers the range of lifestyle choices and societal factors which influence health and well-being. We
investigate the ways in which ill-health can be prevented and the health-promotion methods that are used by
health and social care practitioners. Students will also be involved in planning and running their own health
promotion campaign.

Unit F919 – Care practice and provision.
Students carry out an investigation to show how demographic factors, national policies and legislation
influence the organisation and provision of health, social care and early-years services in the local area.
Quality assurance methods and the effect of a national policy are also researched.
Unit F921 – Anatomy and physiology in practice
Enables students to develop knowledge and understanding of the gross structure, basic micro-anatomy and
functions of the main body systems.
Unit F923 - Mental-health issues
Explores the concepts, types, causes and images of mental health, and the influence the media has on
society’s perception and treatment of individuals with mental-health needs. We examine how people with
mental-health needs can be supported and consider the role of legislation in relation to mental-health.
