Health and Social Care Level 3 Extended Diploma
Below displays the units you will cover over the next two years of study – your lecturer will share more detailed information on each:
- Human Lifespan Development (External assessment)

If the unit is an internal assessment, then it has an independent assignment set by your tutor. You will use class time plus homework slots to complete work. Students are given an assignment sheet for each unit which explains what you will need to do. You will have a progress tracker tick list in your folder and on display in the classroom to help you track what work you have done and how much more you will need to do.
If the unit is an external assessment then this means it is an exam set by the exam board. The first 2 exams you will sit are Units 1 and 2. You will sit these in May/June 2018 and the final exam (Unit 4) will be sat in May/June 2019. You will use class time plus homework slots to complete the work needed in order to pass these exams.
