You will study three Core Units, four Mandatory Units and four Optional Units (possibly more, depending on the credit value), which reflect the needs of the local industry.

Entry Requirements

You will require 4 GCSEs at grades A*- D, including Maths/Numeracy and English/Welsh at Grade D. As well as producing a satisfactory DBS , applicants are required to provide evidence of their suitability to work in the care sector . All applicants will be provided with a “ Suitability for Care pro-forma “ that must be completed . Applicants with appropriate experience, who do not necessarily meet the academic qualifications, may be considered.

You will be invited to attend an interview and you will undertake an assessment in literacy and numeracy to establish any support required.

Assessment

The course is assessed by unit assignments, via a range of methods, e.g. written assessments, oral presentations, role-play and group work, as well as observations by your tutors, and two examinations. You will be continually assessed in college, and at your work placements, for the development of your practical skills and academic knowledge.
