Health & Social Care Cambridge Technical Level 3

Health & Social Care Cambridge Technical Level 3

These are two-year courses, with all the assessment being done through coursework. You have to achieve at least a pass on every unit of the course to achieve the overall qualification. You can choose to take a Cambridge Technical Level 3 qualification as a single course (one of your three Level 3/A Level options) or a double course (two of your Level 3/A Level options). In the single course, you will achieve a Certificate qualification in Health and Social Care in Year 1 and then top this up to an Introductory Diploma qualification in Health and Social Care in Year 2. Alternatively, you can choose to take the double course. In the double course, you will achieve the Introductory Diploma qualification in Health and Social Care in Year 1 and then top this up to a Diploma qualification in Health and Social Care in Year 2.

Course Content

Students will develop professional and personal skills through interaction with people who either work in the sector or require care or support, as well as theoretical knowledge and understanding to underpin their skills. This allows the student to offer specific, person-centred care and support and build positive relationships with the people they are working with, so that their needs and requirements are met whilst they maintain control of their own care and support. Students will consider the real impacts to people living with conditions or illnesses such as the social, financial and psychological impacts, not just the signs, symptoms and treatment of faceless conditions or illnesses. Students will also learn about the legislation and guidance supporting health and social care, so that they can ensure the people they are working with are not only able to access all the care and support they are entitled to, but are also able to protect themselves from any harm or abuse whilst at work.

Entry Requirements
