Want a rewarding career in care? Our health and social care qualification will teach you how to support the elderly, children, and those with disabilities and learning difficulties.
The Level 2 Certificate and Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care enables applied study of the health and social care sector, providing learners with an introduction to key areas relating to current practice.
The mandatory units aim to provide learners with knowledge and understanding of key subject areas in health and social care. The optional units within the Extended Diploma allow learners to pursue an interest in chosen subject areas.
What will I learn?
If you are a caring, hardworking and supportive person then a career in health and social care is just for you.
If you are keen and interested in helping the elderly, working with children and young people or supporting the disabled and contributing in a worthwhile way to making life happier and enjoyable for others, then this is the course for you.
The Extended Diploma programme provides a range of important Level 2 units which build your knowledge, confidence and opportunities for that future valuable career. This programme also aims to improve your English and Maths through Functional Skills sessions – both important areas when considering a future career in care.
To qualify at Level 2 you have to successfully achieve all units, including the Functional Skills. To progress and be considered for the next level on your career path, you MUST achieve an overall MERIT. Because this career requires reliable people, we also expect good attendance, punctuality and a caring considerate attitude, all of which are taken into account when considering your progression to the next important Level 3 programme.
We hope this is the course you have been looking for. If it is, this could open up doors to a rewarding and worthwhile future. We look forward to hearing from you.
