For those looking for a professional career in the health and social care sector, Level 2 will suit those already working as a health and social care worker who wants to increase their skills and take on more responsibility, or just continue their professional development. Or are just starting out in the sector and want to get their first care job.
The wide ranging Diploma covers the skills and knowledge needed to work and develop knowledge in a wide range of work-based settings. It is flexible to suit all fields across the health and social care sector. Learners can choose a pathway of learning that suits their role now or for the future.
To achieve this Diploma, learners must achieve all nine mandatory units, plus option units from the chosen pathway.
The units are assessed in the workplace by a work-based assessor.
A Credit-Based System: the QCF (Qualifications Credit Framework) is the new way of recognising skills and qualifications. It does this by awarding credit for units (small steps of learning) and enables learners to gain or add onto new or existing qualifications or can offer a work-based solution to specialised learning.
Learners can choose from three main pathways that reflect their specific area of work in the health and social care sector.
Optional units within the HSC Diplomas are designed to be combined in flexible ways to reflect the real working context of different learners. When planning the units best suited to an individual learner, all units should be considered by title and content.
The majority of assessment will be work-based, using real experiences, written assessments and observations by a qualified assessor.
Modes of assessment include:
It is anticipated that learners will progress to the Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care (Adults) for England (QCF), or to specialist qualifications reflecting the context in which they work.

I really enjoy studying at Bridgwater & Taunton College. All of my lessons have a friendly atmosphere and my tutors push me to be the best I can be. Studying here has allowed me to gain the qualifications I need to go on to degree level.
