Health and Social Care Level 3 is a level of qualification that can prove to be very useful for people either just starting out in Healthcare or thinking about a career in Healthcare. Any qualification at this level provides the student with a solid foundation understand of Health and Social Care in the preparation for them to apply their knowledge in the workplace or study at a higher level.
People frequently make the mistake of thinking holding a qualification at this level and in this topic would restrict them to only working within Health and Social Care, but that isn’t actually the case. The qualifications available, such at the CACHE Level 3 Award in Health and Social Care or the CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Adult Care, can lead to someone being able to work within Nursing, the Ambulance Service or even Healthcare Management.
What Qualifications do I need to Study at Level 3?
Thankfully, Level 3 courses are entry level and so the only requirements you need to meet to study a course at this level is a good understanding of the English language and some experience of secondary education (this can be either GCSEs or A-Levels). The reason for the need of some experience of secondary education is because students are expected to write essays as part of their course assessment, which is something usually gained when in secondary education.
Where can I study Health and Social Care Level 3?
When it comes to studying the courses, you have the option of either attending a training centre to complete the courses or you can opt to study them online. With some courses, you will be expected to gain some in person experience of the subject by volunteering in a Healthcare role or by studying the course alongside your new role in Health and Social care.
