Assessment Methods

  • Portfolio of Evidence

  • Why choose this qualification?

    These qualifications are intended to provide learners with a broad introduction to the health and social care sector, equipping learners with underpinning knowledge and skills specific to the sector alongside a range of transferable employability skills. They are designed to support progression to further learning and ultimately to work in health and social care or other related sectors.

    The Skills for Health and Social Care qualifications form part of our Suite of Skills qualifications that cover a number of sectors and are available at Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2. The employability skills units are common across the suite, enabling easy transfer of credits between qualifications and supporting opportunities for cross-faculty working.

    The qualifications have been developed with the support of a number of further education colleges, training providers and adult and community learning providers. They have been designed to be consistent with the principles for study programmes for 16-19 year olds but are also relevant, particularly in the case of the smaller qualifications, for adults including the unemployed. These qualifications are also suitable for pre 16 learners.

    Rules of Combination

    Learners must complete the four mandatory units from Group M, totalling 11 credits. In addition, they must complete a minimum of 5 credits from Group O1 (Optional units: Health and Social Care Skills) and 9 further credits from either Group O1 or Group O2 (Optional units: Employability Skills). At least 12 of the credits from Groups O1 and O2 combined must be at level 1 or above. Learners cannot include more than one unit with the same or similar title.
