Health and Social Care

Why do we study Health and Social Care?

Health and Social Care equips our students to discover the impact of positive and negative human development and how to critically analyse how these factors affect our day to day lives. The study of Health and Social Care enables students to explore academically and practically areas that influence how we develop throughout life stages and in turn raise expectations of how we can live successful and healthy lives now and in our future.

Within the Health and Social Care department at Mangotsfield we believe that there has never been a more relevant time to study our subject. Our intention is to fully support and prepare students who want to work with, care for and help other people in their future careers.

Our KS4 Course provides students with the background knowledge and skills needed by someone considering working with people in a health care provision capacity. We have a history of enabling our students to achieve the qualifications they need to build successful careers in the Health and Social Care sector such as; Teaching, Social work, Nursing and Midwifery and Paramedic science.

Enrichment Opportunities

In Health and Social Care we make a conscious effort to work with the local community, for example creating Christmas packages for children in the local hospital, organising Afternoon Tea events for older adults in residential homes and ensuring students develop a first aid certificate which helps them with Unit R031.
