Course description

Health and Social Care BTEC Subsidiary Diploma - Level 3:

This course is for those who want a career in social care or to take a degree in social work, sociology, psychology, social sciences, social policy, nursing or other care-related courses. You'll need to pass a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (formerly CRB) to do this. The course covers:

  • Communication and supportive skills for care work
  • Research for care
  • Sociology
  • Psychology
  • Health promotion
  • Practical caring skills
  • Health and safety
  • Life span development
  • Issues for people who use care
  • Anatomy and physiology.

An external assessment and internally assessed assignments with practical and theoretical activities focusing on real work situations. You'll do work experience in a range of settings. After completion of this course, students will move on to other health and social care courses at South Thames College. From the 90-credit diploma, move up to the extended diploma. From the extended diploma, progress to higher education, for example our HNC in Health and Social Care, or a degree at university, or look for work in a social care organisation.
