Course Description

The purpose of the Pearson BTEC Higher National in Social and Community Work is to develop
students as professional, self-reflecting individuals able to meet the demands of employers in the
social and community work sector and adapt to a constantly changing world. The qualifications aim
to widen access to higher education and enhance the career prospects of those who undertake
them.

The objectives of the Pearson BTEC Higher National in Social and Community Work are as follows:

  • To equip students with social and community work skills and the knowledge and
    understanding necessary to achieve high performance in the global health and social care
    environment
  • To provide education and training for a range of careers in social and community work,
    including: family support work roles, resource officer and personal assistant roles,
    community development work, public health and community support work, care planning
    roles, advocacy, social services supervisory or lower management roles, counselling and
    rehabilitation support roles
  • To provide insight and understanding into the diversity of roles within the social and
    community work sector, recognising the importance of collaboration at all levels
  • To equip students with knowledge and understanding of culturally diverse organisations,
    cross-cultural issues, diversity and values
  • To provide opportunities for students to enter or progress in employment in social or
    community work, or progress to higher education qualifications such as an Honours degree
    in Social Work, Youth and Community Work, Childhood Studies, Public Health, Social Policy
    or a related area
  • To provide opportunities for students to develop the skills, techniques and personal
    attributes essential for successful working lives
  • To support students to understand the local, regional and global context of social and
    community work, management and community development and, for those students with a
    global outlook, to aspire to international career pathways
  • To provide students with opportunities to address contemporary social care issues facing the
    sector, and society at large; with particular emphasis on integrated and compassionate care,
    and person-centred approaches to providing social care interventions and support to
    individuals across the lifespan
  • To provide opportunities for students to achieve a nationally-recognised professional
    qualification within their chosen area of specialisation

  • Any equivalent overseas qualification, or

Recognition of Prior Learning for Admission

Where an applicant has relevant prior learning which is at a level lower than the course being
applied for, that learning will be relevant in terms of whether it meets, or contributes to
meeting, the entry requirements for the first year of a course. This forms part of the admissions
process and is covered under the College’s Recruitment, Selection and Admission Policy.

English Language Requirement

Applicants who wish to apply for the course must provide evidence of proficiency in English
Language to a minimum of level CEFR B2 /IELTS 5.5 (Reading and Writing must be at 5.5) through a
certificate from an approved awarding body (e.g. City and Guilds, Edexcel, Cambridge ESOL, TOEFL,
Trinity, PTE 51) or complete an English assessment set by London Churchill College. Evidence of
proficiency in English is not required if the applicant has studied the last two years (example GCE or
GCSE) or equivalent qualification in the English medium.

Additional support will be provided on specific days organised by LCC to those students who have
already gained admission by satisfying the requirement and still want to improve their English.

Admission Interview:

All shortlisted applicants will be invited for an interview as part of the College’s selection process.
