    A Level

The study of Health and Social Care should by its nature contribute to candidates’ understanding of spiritual, moral, ethical, social, legislative, economic and cultural issues; including taking responsibility for one’s own actions. It also encourages candidates to understand and discuss the decisions that may influence Health and Social Care policies and the subsequent effect on the well-being of the population and the provision of support in the community. In order to understand the nature of Health and Social Care, learning is applied to a range of work related contexts. This can be achieved through a variety of approaches including work experience, links with local employers, case studies and research.
