What is involved?

"The BTEC HNC/HND in health and Social Care will equip individuals with underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for success in employment in the health and/or social care sector at a supervisory or managerial level. It also provides specialist studies relevant to individual vocations and professions in which learners are working or in which they intend to seek employment in the health and/or social care sector. Develop the ability of learners to contribute to the health and social care environment through effective use and combination of the knowledge and skills gained in different parts of the programme. Develop skills and techniques, and personal qualities and attitudes essential for successful performance in working life and thereby enable learners to make an immediate contribution to employment. Develop transferable skills and knowledge which will enable individuals to meet changing circumstances, whether moving within their own area of employment, moving up to a supervisory or management position or adapting to general changes in the provision or environment of health and social care. Prepare individuals to progress to further professional development of higher level skills through to future study or career advancement. Enable study to be supported by vocational practice when this is considered desirable for the chosen progression within the health and social care sector with specialist designed units. However, throughout the programme, individuals will develop the skills that employers are looking for.

What will my career options be?

Some adult learners may wish to make the commitment required by this qualification in order to enter a specialist area of employment in health and social care or progress into higher education. Other learners may want to extend the specialism that they followed on the BTEC Level 4 HNC programme. Learners studying the Pearson BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma in Health and Social Care should be able to progress to the second or third year of an undergraduate degree or directly into employment in an associated profession.
