This qualification aims to give you the opportunity to investigate a work role in the health sector and provide the underpinning knowledge needed to work effectively.
As all employers are now looking to recruit people who already hold a Level 2 Certificate in English and Mathematics (e.g. GCSE grade C/4 or above), a requirement for the course is that you have a minimum of Level 1 in English or be prepared to sit an English assessment to establish your current levels. Please discuss any queries regarding your Mathematics and English because all applications will be considered on an individual basis.
