The BTEC First Certificate aims to give you the opportunity to gain a broad understanding and knowledge of, and skills in, the health and social care sector, e.g. the underpinning care values and an understanding of the different life stages that individuals go through.
Where will it take me?
The course supports progression onto a more specialised Level 3 vocational or academic health and social care course, an Apprenticeship or qualifications in other sectors, such as early years. These, in turn, give you the potential opportunity, in due course, to enter employment within a range of junior job roles across the health and social care sector. The course aims to inspire and enthuse you to consider a career in the health and social care sector, or in a related sector where knowledge of health and social care will be of use.
