Health and Social Care

At Leeds City Academy students have the opportunity to study for the Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Technical Award in Health and Social Care from Year 9 onwards.

The course consists of three units giving students the opportunity to develop a broad knowledge and understanding of health and social care. Units 1 and 2 are assessed through internal assessment (coursework). These units are on human lifespan development and Health and social care services and how they meet the needs of the general public.  In addition, there is one external examination.  This examination is based around health and well being.  Students will learn about physiological and lifestyle factors that contribute to our health.

For further information on the curriculum offered please contact the Academy F.A.O Kelly Allchin (EBACC Subjects).
