A career in health and social care can give you the chance to make a real difference to people’s lives. The sector includes a wide range of roles, with different skills required and varying levels of demand. The industry includes the work which takes place within hospitals, care homes, nursing homes, hospices and dental practices. The BTEC Level 2 in Health and Social Care can help you take your first steps towards a career in the care sector. You’ll learn essential skills such as understanding people’s rights and needs, working with individuals, families and carers, and providing therapeutic activities.
If you have not quite achieved what you would have liked to at GCSE, don’t worry we can help! We provide a range of options that you can study over a one-year period, which on successful completion will allow you to bridge that gap and move to Level 3 programmes of study.
We work in close partnership with many of the North East's leading health and social care employers to ensure our students get the best opportunities to progress in their future career path. Some of our employer partners offer students who complete and achieve their programme of study a guaranteed interview with their organisation.
