Health and Social Care
Curriculum Team Leader: Mrs. Owen
About three million people in the UK work in the health and social care sector – the equivalent to one in every 10 people. Demand for both health and social care is liable to continue to rise due to the ageing population, and so will play a very important role within the UK society. With this, there will be a greater demand for people to work in these roles. Modern society is ever evolving in terms of ‘societal norms’ however human development and how we treat and care for one another continues to be at its core.
The curriculum for Health and Social Care at Lyndon School is designed to give pupils’:
- An insight into some aspects of the health and social care environment, ranging from how the human develops from birth to death to different types of support that might be used.
- An understanding of the care values at the heart of the health and social care sector.
- An opportunity to develop into educated citizens and contribute to society in a positive way.
