Course overview

This is an A Level Mix it up programme. You will study this course alongside A Levels.

Health and Social Care promotes the understanding of many important issues faced within today’s health and social care systems. It is an academic subject that equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary for further study and work in the health, social care and early years sectors. Health and Social Care at MC6 covers key areas such as legislation, care values, effective communication, barriers that people in society may face, major life changes and their effects on people’s self-esteem.

About 3 million people work in health and social care in the UK. Health care roles include doctors, pharmacists, nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, while social care roles include care assistants, occupational therapists, counsellors and administrators. Together, they account for nearly one in ten of all paid jobs available in the UK. Demand for both health and social care is likely to rise as people live longer lives. Therefore, Health and Social Care will continue to play a key role in UK society and the demand for people to carry out these vital roles will increase.
