Health and Medical

The Health and Medical Pathway at Career 6 prepares learners for university places in areas such as Medicine, Midwifery, Nursing, Social Work, Counselling or related subjects.

The combination of 3 or 4 A levels in Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology and a BTEC in Health and Social Care will create a programme of study suitable for further study, an apprenticeship or work in the future.

A Levels are a two-year programme of study, available in a variety of subjects. You will need to select three or four or you can select two or three A Levels and study these alongside a BTEC qualification in your chosen career path.
