Important Information:

  • Learners are required to complete and achieve all three components of the Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Health and Social Care qualification.
  • The three components focus on the assessment of knowledge, skills and practices. These are all essential to developing a basis for progression and, therefore, learners need to achieve all components in order to achieve the qualification.
  • The components focus on:
    – the development of core knowledge and understanding of human growth and
    development, how people deal with major life events, health and social care services
    – the development and application of skills such as: practical demonstration of care values,
    together with the ability to reflect on own performance
    – reflective practice through the development of skills and techniques that allow learners to
    respond to feedback and identify areas for improvement using relevant presentation
    techniques, for example a logbook.
