Health & Social Care

At a time where we need people to help others, to be caring and support others, we at RFSS are in a brilliant position to help inspire, educate and create students who are ready to make an amazing contribution to their local and wider community. 


Within health and social care students have opportunities to learn valuable skills to be successful within the health and social care sectors, to learn how to support themselves and others, and empower people to take care of themselves holistically. 


Unless someone like you 

cares a whole awful lot, 

nothing is going to get 

better. It's not. 


Dr Seuss

Students will learn about the careers they can go into through lessons, taster sessions, visits and more – there are over 350 career paths in the NHS alone. 

Our curriculum intent for health and social care is to give students the opportunity to learn about aspects of the health and social care environment.  This is ranging from how the human develops from birth to death, to different types of support that might be used when expected and unexpected events happen to us. We also look into to seeing how care values are expressed through the different sectors within health and social care. About three million people in the UK work in the health and social care sector - the equivalent to one in every 10 people. Demand for both health and social care is liable to continue to rise due to the ageing population, and so will play a very important role within the UK society. With this, there will be a greater demand for people to work in these roles.
