Make a real difference to people’s lives by supporting others in their time of need. This new Health, Wellbeing and Social Care degree will help open the door to a rewarding career meeting the needs of others in our society. As more emphasis is placed on health promotion in our society, there is an ever-increasing demand for qualified health and social care practitioners. The recent COVID pandemic has sharply focused attention on the importance of good-quality community health care provision. This programme is currently subject to validation with a first intake planned for September 2023. About the course Students will develop an understanding of the theory underpinning care practice, to enhance the quality of care provided for clients either in work or on placement. The curriculum will be strongly influenced by the principles of wellbeing and prevention and the precept that an individual client, their family, and/or carer must be informed and empowered to make decisions relating to their care.
