Department for Health and Social Care and Childcare
Key Stage 4 and 5
As a department we offer a range of courses in both Health and Social and Childcare at key stage 4 and 5. Within our courses we teach a range of topics relating to the caring sector, looking into the daily work of practitioners in the relevant fields. For a full unit break down of each course, please see the link to each course profile below.
Within our department we aim to offer a range of activities both within and outside of the classroom. Many of our courses have elements of work experience where students will spend time in settings such as nurseries, primary schools, care homes or other relevant health settings. Where ever possible we are always trying to enhance learning and often attend events such as the NHS Careers Roadshows, Sheffield teaching hospital events and run partnership events with our local primary schools.
Every other year we also offer a residential visit to Disney Paris where students take part in lectures and seminars covering some of the key concepts which are taught within our courses such as equality and diversity.
