Balancing policy, practice, and academic training, our course is strongly linked to the UK government’s health and social care agendas. Our highly experienced and dedicated team will lead you in an exploration of the principles of care, person-centred health and social care, the ethical aspects of care, and areas such as health promotion, safeguarding, and more. We’ll support you as you learn how to collaborate across professional boundaries, use evidence to inform your decisions and gain an understanding of critical issues in health and social care and ways of dealing with them. Practical experience, including a work experience placement in a health and social care setting, is key to your development. Our focus is on helping you become a knowledgeable, compassionate, and person-centred care professional. Not sure if this is the correct Health and Social Care qualification for you?
