Health and Social Care Level 3 CamTech Fou Dip/Ext Dip (Triple)


There are two pathways students can take on this course:

Pathway 1: Nursing and Midwifery

This pathway is designed to lead students to higher education and careers in nursing and midwifery. More of the units will be focused on anatomy and health care.

This, along with work experience placements, will influence the way lessons are taught in class.

Pathway 2: Social Care and Education

This pathway is designed to lead students to higher education and careers with young people, social work and primary teaching. During the course students will study a range of units and undertake work experience which will prepare them for their chosen career.

The following units are common to both pathways in the first year of the course:

• Positive Relationships (assessed by coursework)

• Infection Control (assessed by coursework)

• Equality and Diversity (assessed by exam)

• Health, Safety and Security (assessed by exam)

• Anatomy and Physiology (assessed by exam)

• In the second year the units are more specialised and may include:

• The impact of long term physiological conditions (assessed by coursework)

• Psychology for health and social care (assessed by coursework)

• Person centred approach to care (assessed by exam)

• Research methods in health, social care and child care (assessed by exam)

You will also complete a work experience placement for two days a week throughout most of the course.

Students will experience a range of teaching activities on the course.

There is a lot of class discussion and small group work. Students will also be expected to give regular presentations of work to the class. Students will need to develop research and academic writing skills.


You need a minimum of five GCSEs at 9-4, including a grade 4
in Science and grade 4 in English Language.
