 Unit 3: Effective communication in health and social care (coursework unit)

 Are you aiming for a career in health or social care? If so, how good are your communication skills?

 Communication skills are vital for those who choose to work in health and social care. Clear communication is important to enable service users to understand and agree to the care they are receiving. Good communication between care professionals allows them to perform their roles effectively, work cooperatively with colleagues and build supportive relationships with service users.

 This unit will allow students to investigate the different forms of communication and how they are used effectively in health and social care. Students will look at the importance of using clear speech, body language that shows that students want to help people, and active listening skills that show students are interested in what people are saying.

 Unit 1: Human lifespan development (examined unit)

 How do people grow and develop throughout their lives? How can factors such as lifestyle choices, relationships and life events affect your growth and development? 

 This unit provides students with the opportunity to explore how we grow and develop throughout our lives and to investigate the factors that affect this growth and development. Students will go on to consider how these factors are interrelated.

There are four distinct aspects to human growth and development, usually classified as physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. These four aspects are closely related to each other, and a change in one can affect some, or all, of the other areas.
