CCEA AS and A2 Single Award Health and Social Care


GCE A level
GCE Health and Social Care allows students to gain knowledge and understanding of the health, social care and early years sectors.
In GCE Health and Social Care, students learn about health and well-being, child development and human behaviour. Students study care services including traditional and holistic therapies. They examine the rights and responsibilities of both patients and service providers while also looking at the importance of communication in care settings and how positive care can be promoted.
Through practical activities, students apply their knowledge and understanding to work-related contexts and develop research, evaluation and problem-solving skills.
