The health and care sector is vast, comprising the statutory, private and voluntary provision of care services. Within this field there is a diverse range of career opportunities for healthcare professionals. The BTEC Level 2 First Certificate and Diploma in Health and Social Care are designed to introduce learners to working in the sector or prepare them for further study, such as a BTEC National qualification or an appropriate NVQ.
