Health & Social Care Cambridge National Level 1 / 2
This course is more work related than other GCSE’s and will involve practical activities and a long research assignment / coursework [now known as controlled assessment]. Students must arrange appropriate Health and Social Care related work experience placements in Year 10; though visits before this time to find out information about jobs.
The content of the course will be based on 2 units as below:
- Health, Social Care and Early Years Provision [coursework]
To do this controlled assessment students must be able to work independently and organise themselves to make visits to an establishment that is HSC related.
- Understanding Personal
Development and Relationships (exam)
How you will be assessed
60% Controlled Assessment [Coursework]
40% Examination [Each exam being 1 hour]
The coursework aspect is demanding and students need to have good organisational and self-motivation skills. A good grasp of English Language would also help. The ability to write at length and work independently is most important.
