Health and Social Care

Health and Social Care Curriculum Vision

Health and Social Care at All Saints actively engages students to develop a critical and analytical approach to problem solving within the sectors of health, social care and early years.

Students will carry out planning, investigation and research and apply their skills to a particular sector within the care provision. They will gain an understanding of care applied to practice and experience the work of a range of care practitioners.
