Cambridge Technical Level 3 Health & Social Care Extended Certificate
Why Study This Subject?
The OCR Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate in Health & Social Care is different from A Level courses because the emphasis is just as much about developing your skills as it is about gaining knowledge.
Equivalent to a full A Level, and consisting of six units over a two year period, the course is graded Distinction, Merit or Pass. This qualification will provide students with a broad overview of the Health & Social Care sector as they develop a deeper insight into the factors that affect individuals throughout their life, the roles and responsibilities of those working in this field, and the ways in which high quality care is provided.
Topics you will cover
Unit 1 – Building positive relationships in Health and Social Care (coursework unit)
Unit 2 – Equality, diversity and rights in Health and Social Care (exam unit)
Unit 3 – Health, safety and security in Health and Social Care (exam unit)
Unit 4 – Anatomy and Physiology for Health & Social care (exam unit)
Unit 10 – Nutrition for Health (coursework unit)
