HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE

SUBJECT OVERVIEW

Health and Social Care is offered as a Key Stage 4 and 5 option at Hatch End High School as either a Level 2 or Level 3 option. It is suitable for students interested in careers in health, social care or childcare but also provides any pupil with a good preparation for adult life.

Health and Social Care aims to provide an excellent grounding for students interested in careers in health, social care or childcare but also provides any student with a good preparation for adult life. We aim to actively engage students to support them to develop as effective and independent learners, whilst also helping them to develop a critical and analytical approach to problem solving, within the health, social care and early-years sectors. Students are encouraged to examine issues that affect the nature and quality of human life, which includes an appreciation of diversity and cultural issues as well as understanding aspects of personal development.
