Course outline

The Level 1 Certificate in Introduction to Health, Social Care and Children's and Young People's Settings aims to develop learners' knowledge and awareness of health, social care and children's and young people's settings. It is aimed at learners in college who wish to develop an understanding of the similarities and differences between these settings.

This qualification provides pathways into the sector for school leavers or anyone considering a career in health and/or social care. It will not confirm competence in a job role but will provide an opportunity for learners to develop knowledge about the wider health and social care sector before they decide whether working in the sector is for them and gain information to make decisions about career progression.
