||BTEC Level 2 Diploma|
||Ms A. Wiggins|
The six-unit BTEC First Diploma offers a specialist vocational qualification that focuses on preparing students for employment within the health and social care sector. The six units are very varied and cover a wide range of issues that are relevant to the sector, for example, human development, health and safety, communication and diversity. The course also offers the opportunity for students to complete a work experience placement in a setting of their choice. The course offers an engaging programme of study that is assessed in a number of ways.
||This course can lead to any occupation within the health and social care sectors, including working with client groups such as children, the elderly and people with disabilities or the physically ill. If you get at least a Merit for your overall grade then you could progress to a BTEC National Diploma in Health and Social Care (2 years).|
