Our BTEC Level 2 Certificate in Health and Social Care course is designed to introduce you to working in the health and social care services sector and prepare you for further study, or allow you to gain a further qualification for your own career development.

If you want to make a real difference, the health and social care sector could hold the right career for you.

This accredited, nationally-recognised BTEC Health and Social Care course offers the ideal introduction to a whole range of health and social care careers - or a formal recognition of your experience if you are already working in the field. This course sits at Level 2 on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) allowing you to gain valuable credits towards further study or simply enable you to gain an accredited qualification. In either case, the in-depth knowledge of health and social care problems and the services on offer will be invaluable if you are looking to improve your prospects.

The Certificate in Health and Social Care course will take you through the issues that need to be considered and explored when working in health and social care environments within a multi-cultural society. It will also look at the rights of individuals in society, for example the right to be treated equally and fairly, to be respected and not to be discriminated against.

You will then explore the services available in the Health and Social Care sector and the job roles needed - helping you to understand where you may fit in the sector.
