Health and Social Care

Head of Department: Ms K. Hunda

Health and Social Care is a vocational BTEC course which prepares students looking to enter the fitness or health industries. As such, it helps to develop student’s understanding of the practicalities of working in this sector, alongside building up a core foundation of knowledge relating to human health and development.


Sixth Form students at Barclay have the opportunity to study for a BTEC Level 3 National Award in Health and Social Care, which is equivalent to an A-Level. The course encompasses elements of human biology, sociology, psychology, nutrition, and ethics. Students who choose to take this course will have the opportunity to enter a relevant and rewarding sector that is dedicated to improving the lives of others.
