Year Group Road Map
The Health and Social care Department are committed to ensuring that your child is not disadvantaged from the current circumstances. We have managed to keep the content for each year group the same and we have two interventions slots to provide extra time and support for students. Following OCR's advice we are focusing on the mandatory subjects first and we have extra time at the end of the year to focus on each bit of coursework and making improvements.
Throughout year 10 students will be explore the different aspects of human welfare. They will be completing a First aid unit and Values of care unit. Within First aid students will be develop a range of skills including; be able to write about the different elements of First Aid, be able to perform basic First Aid Procedures and, to be able to reflect on how the Role of a First Aider contributes to the wider community of the Health and Social Care industry.
