GCSE Health & Social Care

About this qualification
This course is designed for learners who have an interest in Health and Social Care and wish to develop skills and learn theory that can prepare them for further study and employment within this sector.

What will learners study?
Learners must complete 3 mandatory units.

Unit 1: Improving the well-being of an individual
Learners will choose a client and carry out a range of testing techniques to measure and evaluate their health and then produce, implement and review a plan that will aim to make lifestyle changes that could improve their health. They will then review and evaluate the impact this plan has had on their chosen client.

Assessment: coursework – 30% of the technical award

Unit 2: Promoting healthy living
In this unit learners will research and evaluate existing health promotion campaigns and then plan and deliver their own health promotion campaign. This involves an element of creativity that learners will enjoy, particularly as they will have the freedom to choose the type of materials they produce, from posters or wall displays in school to promotional videos or radio scripts. At the end, learners will review and evaluate the success of their campaign.
