As/A2 Health & Social Care at Newbold Community School

Course description

Health & Social Care at A-Level develops an interest and understanding of health and well-being.
A work based placement (in Year 12) will help develop skills of research, evaluation and problem
solving in a work-related context as well as developing personal response to observations and
experiences within a care setting. The work placement will allow you to experience real life
situations and develop investigative and communication skills which will be directly relevant to
future employment.

We aim to have Health & Social Care professionals visit lessons to broaden understanding of the
different work and roles of people in this sector.

Entry requirements

It is an advantage to have taken GCSE Health & Social Care but not necessary. At least Grade C in GCSE English.
