At Les Voies, KS4 students are given the opportunity to work towards the 'BTEC Level 1 or 2 Health & Social Care' qualification.
The subject focuses on health and social care environments. This could include working with vulnerable groups of people including children, the elderly and those with physical or learning difficulties.

Students will complete the following 4 units:
Human lifespan development
The impact of nutrition on health and wellbeing

3 units will be internally assessed with the addition of 1 written exam.
