University of Winchester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Health and Social Care (Disability Studies) is the ideal programme for students who know that they want to work in the field of disability, but are not yet sure which direction they want to take, or for those who wish to pursue academic study in disability studies. You will have the valuable opportunity to explore issues around disability within the context of health, wellbeing and social care, from a multi-agency and community perspective, for a range of different people whether that is around conditions or issues such as physical impairment, intellectual and (neuro)developmental disabilities, autism, mental health issues, or older people. The overall aim of the pathway is to equip you with the academic and practice‐based knowledge and understandings to be challenging and critical agents of change in the public, private or voluntary sector, and to work in ways that will support and empower members of ‘vulnerable’ groups to gain effective support, inclusion, independence and wellbeing.
