Health and Social Care

About 3 million people work in health and social care. Health care roles include doctors, pharmacists, nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, while social care roles include care assistants, occupational therapists, counsellors and administrators. Together, they account for nearly one in ten of all paid jobs in the UK. Demand for both health and social care is likely to rise, so they will continue to play a key role in UK society and the demand for people to carry out these vital roles will increase.

Students develop knowledge and understanding through applying their learning to work related contexts and gain the skills they need for further study and employment.

In Health and Social Care, we are committed to fulfilling the whole school Literacy drivers. Including, improving reading comprehension and vocabulary enhancement.
