Health and Social Care

Welcome to Health and Social Care

The Edexcel BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Health and Social Care has been developed to provide an engaging introduction to the sector for learners aged 14 years and above. It has been designed primarily for young people aged 14 to 19 who may wish to explore a vocational route throughout Key Stage 4, but it is also suitable for other learners who want a vocationally focused introduction to this area of study. It has been developed to:

  • give learners the opportunity to gain a broad understanding and knowledge of the health and social care sector
  • give learners a more focused understanding of health and social care through the selection of optional specialist units
  • give learners the opportunity to develop a range of personal skills and techniques, through the selection of optional generic units that are essential for successful performance in working life
  • give opportunities for learners to achieve a nationally recognised level 1/2 health and social care qualification
  • support progression into a more specialised level 3 vocational or academic course or into an apprenticeship.
