Health and Social Care

The health and social care sector is vast, with around 1.7 million non-medical staff employed in the NHS in England alone.

We offer Health & Social Care qualifications from Level 1 – 3 to prepare our students for the wealth of employment opportunities in the sector. These career opportunities are predicted to grow in order to meet the needs of our aging population, as well as the gradually increasing birth rate.

Health care and social care priorities are focused on disease prevention, the promotion of healthy lifestyles and giving those we support more independence, choice and control about the care they receive.

  • Nurse
  • Care worker
  • Family Support Officer
  • Social Worker
  • Nursing home Carer

  • Occupational Therapist
