Level 2 T Level Foundation Programme in Health

T Level Foundation Programme in Health If you want to make a positive difference to someone’s life by contributing to their health, happiness and wellbeing then a career in Health and Social Care is the choice for you.

This foundation programme will allow you to gain all the necessary skills, experience and knowledge to progress on to a T -Level in Health or an appropriate apprenticeship. With a focus on Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, as well as an emphasis on social care, and the skills you will need to succeed, this course is designed for students who are not yet ready to take on a T Level programme. During this year you will have a chance to achieve grade 4’s in your Maths and English GCSE’s, build resilience and communications skills, as well as confidence and vital knowledge.

The course aims to help you enhance the skills you already possess and develop others such as the ability to treat people with dignity, empathy and excellent time management.

Studying the course will introduce you to some of the practices being used within health and social care settings such as hospitals, care homes and children’s centres. This will include person-centred care, infection prevention and communication strategies and could be developed in the classroom, equipped clinical room or work placement.

What you will learn

This 1 year course will explain the role of the Health and Social Care practitioner when working with members of the community.

Through hands-on learning you will learn about a number of interesting areas including growth and development, Anatomy and Physiology, communication, Health and Safety and Equality and Diversity.

You will also develop your practical skills through a placement in a health and social care setting which will give you working knowledge of current practice and build on your skills to be an effective team member.

Our experienced tutors will give you the skills and confidence to be able to develop person centred care plans and respond to individuals needs effectively.

We help you to find your placement and a member of the team will visit you once per term to see how you are progressing.

Assessment

You will be assessed throughout the year both with internal assignments and external assessment. The assessments will take a range of forms, such as assignments, simulation activities, or formative exams.

Progression
