OCR is currently reforming its GCSEs, AS and A Level in line with the government programme of general qualification reform. However, in May 2015 Ofqual announced that GCSE Health and Social Care would not be available for redevelopment as part of the reform of GCSEs.
We offer a variety of alternative Health and Social Care qualifications including our Cambridge Nationals in Health and Social Care. Cambridge Nationals are vocationally related qualifications at GCSE level geared to key sector requirements.
We've built the specification to include student-led studies on areas of particular interest to be based in the learners' local communities. This is motivating for learners and also allows them to be part of their local communities.
