This flexible foundation degree is a work based learning award combining health and social care education with either existing employment or work placements to develop skills for a wide range of roles across health, social or community care sectors. The course is an award of Sheffield Hallam University and has two routes. For those already employed in assistant or support worker roles in health, social or community care the course allows you to complete both the Higher Apprenticeship in Health (Assistant Practitioner) and the Foundation Degree. The course provides you with your continuing personal and professional development and, depending on your employer, would allow you to undertake a Band 4 Associate/Assistant role. If you are not in employment the course will provide you with a placement in a suitable role, which will allow you to develop the necessary skills and competencies alongside your academic studies to complete the Foundation Degree.
