Discover the learning experience and opportunities you can expect from this course.

Sometimes, getting your foot in the door is the most important step towards getting the job of your dreams. That’s why our Level 2 programme is based around work experience and gaining an understanding of health and social care jobs in your local area. Many of our Level 2 students are successful in gaining employment in the sector once they’ve completed our Level 2 study programme, either as an Apprentice or as a full time employee. The programme can be a useful transition between school and higher-level courses such as our Level 3 in Health and Social Care, and it can give you the space to develop your English, Maths, and job-readiness skills.

You will be assessed against the targets that you set at the start of the year. These might be based around your English and Maths grades. There will also be targets around your work-readiness, based on what local employers tell us that they need from new care staff. Your main vocational qualification will be the Cache/NCFE Level 2 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care, which is assessed entirely through college-marked coursework.
