Child Care




Aims and Philosophy

The Vocational Department not only offers a range of new subject areas for students from KS4 onwards, it also offers potential new pathways of learning. The courses offered provide an opportunity to develop an understanding of the world of work through the study of vocationally based subject areas. Personal experience, knowledge and close links with local providers and outside agencies are major sources of reference and information for vocational courses. These help to engender a feeling of reality into the work covered and prepare students for the world of work.


At Key Stage 4 students get the opportunity to follow a study pathway through vocationally based subject areas.

GCSE Health and Social Care (WJEC)

This qualification provides an opportunity for candidates to pursue a course of study and develop their knowledge and understanding of health and social care in a vocational context. It is suitable for those who want a broad background in all health and social care sectors and provides valuable preparation, both for those who want to progress to higher education as well as for those entering the workplace.

BTEC Children’s Play, Learning and Development (Edexcel)

The Childrens Play, Learning and Development qualification is designed to introduce learners to working in the childrens care sector and to prepare them for further study.

The childrens care sector comprises statutory, private and voluntary provision of care services. Employees in this strictly regulated sector need to demonstrate the highest standards of care and professional conduct in the workplace and an understanding of this is developed through the topics and units covered in this course.

Advanced Level Health and Social Care (WJEC)

This is a popular GCE, offering candidates a holistic learning experience, with the opportunity to engage local employers, and the possibility of work experience.  Candidates also have the opportunity to learn in an applied health and social care context, developing fundamental personal and professional skills.

Whilst the qualification is not designed for candidates’ direct entry into specialised employment within the health and social care sectors, it does offer a suitable foundation for employment in the sectors in a more general context, as well as for the study of health and social care through higher education.
