You will complete four units – two in each year (Y10 & Y11)
There are two Mandatory Units that have to be completed:
The other two optional units will be decided once we know the range and number of students.
Internally set work will cover a wide range of outcomes – written reports, displays, visits to a range of health and social care placements, presentations, handbooks and other forms of assessment.

If you would like to find out more or talk about the course before making a decision then come and talk with Mrs Brighouse in the Health & Social Care Department.
