  Health and Social Care 
Year 10

The BTEC Tech award in Health and Social Care offers an opportunity for students to develop skills and knowledge in the growth and development of individuals, the aspects of working in health and social care and also how individuals with health and wellbeing issues are diagnosed and treated. 

The course is split into 3 parts: 

  • Component 1 – human lifespan development.  

  • Component 2 – health and social care services and values 

  • Component 3 health and wellbeing. this year to learn about how the body grows and develops over a series of “life stages”  

We will investigate how external factors may affect how an individual grows and develops and the effects of different life events on individuals. They will be able to distinguish between an expected and unexpected life event. 

We will lastly investigate the difference between expected and unexpected life circumstances and how people deal with major life events.
