Our Subject Advisor service has been designed to support all our Childcare and Health & Social Care qualifications. Led by new Subject Advisor Kate Elsmore, it will help solve your queries about our Childcare and Health & Social Care qualifications and make it easier for you to share ideas, information and concerns.
Central to the service is our online Childcare and Health & Social Care Community Forum, which gives you an opportunity to speak to other teachers, raise concerns and ask advice. Whether you have concerns about new specifications or assessment, or you want to know what books and resources to use to support your teaching, you can use the forum to find out more. You can also find a range of documents and useful links.
If you are an existing Edexcel centre, you can use the site and the materials posted on it to help with planning and teaching our current Childcare and Health & Social Care qualifications. We would also value your feedback to help us improve our qualifications, support and services.
