AS/A Level Health and Social Care Specification
Latest Examiners' Report

This page contains information related to our GCE AS/A level Health and Social Care specification available in England and Wales.

Following Qualifications Wales's decision to defer the introduction of the new GCE AS/A level qualifications for Health and Social Care until September 2020, the final assessment opportunity for the current GCE AS/A level Single Award qualifications will be summer 2021 with a resit opportunity in 2022 (if required).

As previously communicated, the final assessment for the GCE AS/A level Double Award qualifications will be summer 2020 with a resit available in summer 2021 (if required).

The new GCE AS/A level in Health and Social Care, and Childcare forms part of a suite of new qualifications being developed for the health and social care, and childcare sectors in Wales by the City & Guilds/WJEC Consortium. Details of the new qualification can be found on the Consortium website.

 

England Centres Only

We've launched a new Level 3 Applied Certificate and Diploma in Health and Social Care for England. For more information, please visit the Eduqas website.

 

Level 3 Applied Health and Social Care (England Only)

The new WJEC Level 3 Applied Health and Social Care qualifications will be designed to provide learners with underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills of the health and social care sectors, providing a broad basis for further or higher education or for moving into employment within the sectors. These qualifications will be built on a firm foundation of knowledge and understanding of practitioner roles and values, set within contemporary sector-specific contexts.

WJEC Level 3 Applied qualifications have been designed as two-year courses, although this is not a mandatory requirement. They:

  • are graded A*-E
  • are designed to complement GCE AS/A Levels and other Level 3 qualifications
  • are available as a Certificate (180 GLH) or Diploma (360 GLH)
