How do you become an effective communicator? If you are looking for a career as a nurse, midwife, social worker, teacher or other care professional and want to develop your skills and understanding that are directly relevant, then this is the qualification for you.

We cover many aspects of health and social care, including nutrition for health, developing effective communication, anatomy and physiology, dementia care, caring for additional needs, equality and diversity, psychology for health and social care, sexual health, reproduction and early development, health and safety and supporting people with mental health difficulties. Our students also have the opportunity to do some volunteering and work experience at well-known organisations like ReVitalise during their studies.

Health and Social Care students learn through practical tasks, self-supported study, research in groups or pairs, and formal teaching. You will also have the opportunity to meet people who are working in the industry.

This course is a mixture of course work and formal examinations.
