Course summary

The BTEC Higher National qualification in Integrated Health and Social Care targets students wanting to continue their education through applied learning. This route provides students with sound academic knowledge and practical knowledge skills needed for a successful career in the health or social care settings. **Learning and Teaching Approach**This programme is delivered with a variety of learning and teaching approaches to include all students’ learning styles and preferences. For all modules, theory lectures are delivered that aim to deliver the core content and provide the underpinning knowledge. To complement the theory lectures, students have group seminars/practical sessions that are used to reinforce concepts delivered theoretically. The teaching methods focus on facilitating a student-centred approach to enhance the independent learning that takes place outside of the classroom. Teaching will take place on the Bishop Burton campus with blended Learning used to take advantage of learning technologies to provide support and allow students to participate and engage in learning wherever they are located or working. **What is the contact time?**Approximately 17 hours a week to include lectures, seminars and tutorials. Students are also expected to carry out a significant amount of private study in addition to contact time (25-30 hours a week). Part-time is also available with this being taught alongside the full-time programme. Students can expect to receive their timetables during induction week. Students must complete a minimum of 225 hours of work placement whilst on the programme, and it is the responsibility of students to source appropriate work based experiences with the support of the course tutor and existing industry links within the local area.**What else can I expect?**- Experienced, supportive and motivated staff with both academic and industrial experience.- Talks from a range of visiting speakers. - Online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) used to enhance and facilitate teaching and independent learning on all programmes - Additional facilities include Science Centre, IT suites, dedicated University Centre, study spaces and social areas, and modern Learning Resources Centre.- Opportunities to attend trips, conferences and additional courses to enhance learning. - Students have access to a range of support through our study skills, and health and wellbeing teams. Further information can be found on our website: https://www.bishopburton.ac.uk/student-life/student-support - Relevant extra-curricular activity and/or work experience is encouraged of all students in order to enhance learning.**What kind of job could I get when I graduate?**Senior care assistant, senior support worker in a range of health and care settings, pathway tracker, integrated support worker, care navigator or co-ordinator. Upon successful completion of the HNC programme students can progress onto HND or the second year (level 5) of related Bachelors or Foundation degree study (subject to approval of prior learning from the delivering institution)
