Entry Requirements

To be eligible to apply for this course you need 5 GCSEs at grades 4-9 (previously grades A*-C), including English, Maths and Science, however we offer re-sit options for maths if needed.

A level 2 Health and Social Care qualification is beneficial but not essential. You will also need to have DBS clearance in order to undertake your work placement.

If you are a year 11 student applying for this programme, we will compare your GCSE results with the minimum target grades set for you by your school. This will help us decide whether this is your most suitable programme of study. Other students, including those from outside the area, will have an opportunity to discuss their qualifications and experience to make sure they too are studying at the right level. For some programmes, we might need to observe you carrying out certain practical tasks before we can make you an offer.

Essential Skills – English and Maths

If you achieve a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. At B&FC, this won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.
