Health and Social Care

The Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Health and Social Care is for learners who wish to acquire knowledge, understanding and technical skills through vocational contexts as part of their Key Stage 4 learning. It gives students a more focused understanding of health and social care and the opportunity to develop a range of personal skills and techniques.

The qualification consists of three components that give learners the opportunity to develop broad knowledge and understanding of health and social care at Levels 1 and 2. Components 1 and 2 are assessed through internal assessment. There is one external assessment, Component 3, which provides the main synoptic assessment for the qualification.

  • Component 1: Human Lifespan Development: Learners will investigate how, in real situations, human development is affected by different factors and that people deal differently with life events. 30% of the total course.
  • Component 2: Health and Social Care Services:  Learners study and explore practically, health and social care services and how they meet the needs of real service users. They also develop skills in applying care values. 30% of the total course.
  • Component 3: Health and Wellbeing: Learners will study the factors that affect health and wellbeing, learning about physiological and lifestyle indicators, and how to design a health and wellbeing improvement plan. 40% of the total course.
