About the course

This course will provide practical guidance and resources to support centres and practitioners to set up and deliver the new AAQ BTEC National in Health & Social Care (Extended Certificate). We have invested a lot of time into thoroughly unpicking and understanding the structure, content and assessment of this qualification, so you don't have to!

Our experienced hosts will facilitate a day which will:

  • Highlight the key differences in the newly developed specification
  • Explore options for planning this qualification on a two-year, whole course level, including assessment schedules and exam timing
  • Look in detail at planning for this qualification on a unit-by-unit basis, including teacher utilisation and choosing your optional unit
  • Offer guidance on the appropriate breadth, depth and level of detail you should be teaching at for the mandatory units:
    • Unit 1 Human Lifespan and Development
    • Unit 2 Human Biology and Health
    • Unit 3 Principles of Health and Social Care Practice

Join us for a full day of opportunities to collaborate with colleagues as you prepare your schedule of learning for September 2025.
