Health and Social Care

The aims of the Department are to provide learners with the practical and academic skills to help them progress to further vocational qualifications and to gain employment in the health and social care sector.

We aim to give learners the opportunity to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in life and in work.

We also aim to provide a course of study which learners find interesting, stimulating and thought provoking which enables them to gain a good vocational qualification. We hope to both challenge and inspire our students to enable them to move on successfully to further education or employment.

The health and social care sector is varied and interesting and we will inform students of the many opportunities that are open to them in order that they may fulfil their potential.

How Parents Can Help

Encourage your daughter to read independently or you may want to read with her and have regular discussions with her about the texts she is reading. You could get your daughter to think and reflect on what she has learnt and get her to communicate her ideas.

You could ask your daughter to check her homework carefully for errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar before she hands it in. Encourage her to read through her sentences to ensure that they are clear and accurate.

You should encourage your daughter to use various sources to complete homework and coursework such as reading books, newspapers, searching the internet and watching the news. They will be developing analytical skills and will be able to summarise information.
