KS4: Students study the OCR Cambridge Nationals Level 2 certificate in health and social care
‘This course is the equivalent to a GCSE but instead of 9-1 grades students receive a Pass, Merit, Distinction or Distinction* grading. The units studied are:
R021 – essential values of care for use with individuals in care settings, R022 – communicating and working with individuals in health & social care, R025 – understanding life stages and R026 – planning for employment in health, social care and children’s and young people’s workforce. Units R022, R025 and R026 are internally assessed through coursework and R021 is assessed by an external examination in the June of year 10.
This course offers students who would like to work in health care, social care or child care an opportunity to learn many of the skills considered to be essential for their future career. Many of these skills, communication skills in particular, are also transferrable to many other industry sectors.’
