I am in year 11 and looking at my options. I would like to work within a school but not as teacher more a pastoral role. I would prefer to work with older children not under 5's so don't really want to do an early years course. However this may sound mean but I don't want to have to do my work experience in dementia care or work with old people and people have told me that work placements on health and social care courses are normally in old persons homes. Could someone tell me if this is correct or false information. thank you

Not necessarily, with the health and social care course you can work in school settings however i'm pretty sure children must be above the age of 5 as otherwise it is considered a childcare placement, which is a different course. In my experience, my college has accepted placements in schools for children with additional needs, rather than just a regular school as it needs to link to health and social care. There's also other options for placement such as day centres supporting individuals with additional needs, there's plenty out there just have a good look!
