Health & Social Care

‘Building powerful knowledge to grow confident & creative global citizens.’

At Lincoln Academy we value the importance of health and wellbeing.  Studying Health and Social Care provides our students with a solid foundation of knowledge, skills and understanding that underpins the effective use of skills, processes and attitudes required in the Health and Social Care sector such as human growth and development, Health and Social Care services, and factors affecting people’s health and wellbeing.  Developing an understanding of the attitudes and care values that are vitally important to the sector, our students also gain an appreciation of skills and attributes beneficial to all roles that involve working with others.
