At Firth Park Academy, our Health and Social Care department is motivated and driven to help every pupil succeed who chooses to study this subject as one of their GCSE options. Health and Social Care is a subject which can give students a wide range of skills, allowing them opportunities to develop their knowledge through written assignments, practical demonstrations as well as an external exam. This course caters for students of all abilities covering grades from Level 2 Distinction * to Level 1 Pass. The course hopes to inspire and enthuse learners to consider a career in a health, social care or early years sector as well as equipping them with many skills which can be used later in life. Health and Social Care encourages students to be good at self management especially with meeting coursework deadlines, helps them to reflect on their own work and as well as this, it will help them develop their communication and teamwork skills.
