Course overview: This one year full-time course is ideal if you are seeking a career working in health and social care, and looking to develop your skills in a hands-on way. The philosophy of the course is to develop a comprehensive knowledge of care, the care sector and concepts surrounding health and wellbeing.

Professional and key transferable skills are embedded into the modules to enhance employability and facilitate lifelong learning and the majority of the academic team have industry experience to enhance and integrate professional skills. The concept of introduce, emphasise, advance, is utilised. The focus is on emphasise, to encourage progressive learning, allowing for a gradual change in teaching strategies that decrease the degree of support needed, leading to independent learners.

You are required to complete 100 hours placement in a health and social care setting environment. After the course: On successful completion of the course you can apply to the second year of the FdSc Health, Wellbeing and Social Support or seek employment in social care. There may also be an opportunity to access relevant pre-registration health or social work programmes. The course may lead to eligibility for professional registration.
