Course summary

This programme offers a unique opportunity to undergo a course of study, which compliments the development of skills and competencies in the workplace. The programme has been designed as a partnership between employers and education providers and provides a vocationally relevant higher education qualification. The foundation degree programme has the advantage of offering on-going support in the workplace in conjunction with academic support from the college. The academic staff teaching on the programme have vocational experience in the field of health and social care as well as proven academic integrity and are ideally placed to help you bridge the gap between theory and practice in your area of work practice equipping you with transferrable skills. Work in the care sector today is challenging and continually evolving. The need to have ‘joined-up’ services between health and social care is important. To this end, the training and education you receive will allow you to see your own job role and organisation within the wider care context. Issues around care delivery are always topical, and informed understanding of these issues is important for both students of the subject and workers employed in the care sector.
