Health and Social Care, and Childcare update

Tuesday 15 Dec 2020

The adaptations for the Level 2 Core qualifications in Health and Social Care and Children's Care, Play, Learning and Development are being extended until 31 August 2021. During this period, learners will only be required to complete a reduced number of assessments to achieve their Core qualification. Centres may also continue to offer assessment of the case study questions through verbal question and answer sessions with the learner.  These adaptations are now available to all learners who are expecting to complete their learning and achieve their Core qualification by 31 August 2021, including those who have registered after 1 September 2020.  

Centres must continue to deliver all of the content for these qualifications and ensure that learners are fully prepared before attempting each assessment. We have worked with the awarding bodies, Social Care Wales and Health Education and Improvement Wales to put these arrangements in place to respond to the continued impact of the pandemic on learners in Wales. We hope that this extension will enable as many learners as possible to progress to the next stage of their learning or into employment.

Further details will be available on the Health and Care Learning Wales website.
