Course info

Summary

The purpose of BTEC Higher National qualifications in Healthcare Practice is to develop students as professional, self-reflecting individuals able to meet the demands of employers in the healthcare sector and adapt to a constantly changing world. BTEC Higher Nationals include a Level 4 Certificate (HNC) and a Level 5 Diploma (HND). The qualifications aim to widen access to higher education and enhance the career prospects of those who undertake them.

Programme Structure

The programme at Level 4 and Level 5 follows the ‘Healthcare Management’ pathway. The normal timescale for achieving a Level 4 HNC by full-time study is one-year. The normal timescale for achieving a Level 5 HND by full-time study is two-years. Progression to Year 2 of the programme is dependent on satisfactory completion of Year 1.

The one-year Level 4 HNC:

Requires successful completion of 7 units
Mixes 4 mandatory core, 2 mandatory specialist, and 1 specialist/ optional unit, each with a value of 15 credits except ‘Demonstrating Professional Principles and Values in Health and Social Care Practice’ which is 30 credits (120 total)
Total Qualification Time (TQT) is 1200 hours
Total Guided Learning Hours (GLH) is 480 hours.

The two-year Level 5 HND:

Requires successful completion of a further 7 units (therefore 14 in total)
Mixes 2 mandatory core, 3 mandatory specialist, and 2 specialist/ optional units, each with a value of 15 credits except ‘Innovation and Improvement through Action Research’ which is 30 credits (240 total minimum)
Total Qualification Time (TQT) is 2400 hours
Total Guided Learning Hours (GLH) is 960 hours.

Compulsory work experience/placement requirements

The Level 4 HNC in Healthcare Practice requires at least 225 hours of work experience/ placement in health and/ or social care settings and a ‘Professional Learning and Development’ portfolio (PLAD), including reflective accounts, to be completed.

The Level 5 HND in Healthcare Practice requires at least 450 hours of work experience/ placement in health and/ or social care settings and a ‘Professional Learning and Development’ portfolio (PLAD), including reflective accounts, to be completed over the two-year period of the qualification.

Students can undertake placement in more than one setting, providing they meet the minimum requirement for types of setting as indicated above.

In order to work in the care sector, you would require Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance and you will be responsible for arranging this. There will be a charge to obtain DBS clearance to be met by yourself or your employer. You will not get DBS clearance if you have a criminal record and so are unlikely to get employment in the care sector now or in the future. You must declare all criminal convictions to the college otherwise we cannot advise you properly.

English Language Requirements

Non-native English speakers who have not undertaken their final two years of schooling in English, must demonstrate capability in English at Level 2 (or equivalent) before being admitted to the programme. Equivalent grades to Level 2 include CEFR B2, PTE 51, and IELTS 5.5 (reading and writing must be at 5.5). After gaining admittance, such students are still encouraged to enrol on the Level 2 English course because it should still help with their HND study, career development or further study.
