health and social care
Health and Social Care is an exciting and rewarding choice. As the Health and Social Care sector is undergoing a rapid change, there is a high demand for multi-skilled and well-trained professionals across a range of rewarding employment opportunities. There are a number of ways that you’ll get to know the sector during your course. Your teachers will share their vocational experiences with you while you learn and you will have the opportunity to engage in work experience. Our courses are delivered creatively using students’ work experience as a focal point and enabling students to be as active, practical and work-related as possible.
Our courses are designed to give you the knowledge, understanding and skills that you need to prepare for employment. Our courses further provide career development opportunities as well as progression opportunities to higher education. This is your chance to discover what it’s like to work in your chosen area, leaving you confident in launching your career.
You will have plenty of courses to choose from. You will not only develop your academic skills, but also acquire a range of work-related skills. These skills are applicable to a wide range of careers both within and outside of the Health and Social Care sector. As we are constantly upgrading our facilities, we think you’ll be impressed by our campus – most students are.
