About Our Subject

Health and Social Care is well established at CWLC and is often a popular option choice with our students at KS4. As a result we have seen our numbers grow year on year in the department and we currently have 3 groups in year 9, 2 groups in year 10 and 1 group in year 11. Due to the demand we have also started teaching Health and Social Care at KS5. All classes are mixed gender and mixed ability.

As a vocational subject we are passionate that the students get as much contact with professionals and service users from the Health, Social Care and Early Years’ settings as possible in order to gain valuable experience and learn best practice.

As Health, Social Care and Early Years’ continues to be daily headline news in our ever changing society (locally, regionally, nationally and globally) especially now during this time of a pandemic. Workers within the Health, Social Care and Early Years’ settings at all levels have shown themselves to be invaluable and indispensable members of society. There are now more job opportunities available within the Health, Social Care and Early Years’ than ever before. Any job within the Health, Social Care or Early Years’ provides a good skill base and is rewarding.

Our current year 9 students are preparing to start the BTEC Tech Award in Health and Social Care level 1 / 2 in year 10 (September 2021) . This involves the students completing a; NHS booklet linked to the pandemic, an Introduction to Health and Social Care booklet and a Healthy Body and Mind booklet.

Our current year 10 and year 11 students are following the OCR Cambridge National Health and Social Care Level 1 / 2 Course. This involves the students completing and passing 4 units (2 mandatory ones and 2 optional ones)
