Our comprehensive course is designed to improve your education and training for a range of careers in healthcare, including healthcare assistant practitioner roles, nursing assistant/auxiliary roles, care navigation, planning and assessment roles, public health, health promotion, and non-clinical healthcare supervisory or lower management. At Level 4, you'll learn about law, policy and ethical practice, demonstrating professional principles and values in health and social care practice, supporting the individual journey through integrated health and social care, fundamentals of evidence-based practice, principles of health education, effective healthcare practice using maths, and applied anatomy and physiology. With our course, you'll have the opportunity to achieve a nationally-recognised professional qualification within your chosen area of specialisation. Our assessments are continuous through assignment briefs containing practical, theoretical, research and evaluative elements. You'll also complete at least 450 hours (225 at Level 4) of work experience/placement in health and/or social care settings and a Professional Learning and Development portfolio (PLAD), including reflective accounts, over the two-year period of the qualification (one year for the HNC and a further year for the HND). Our excellent facilities include a fully equipped ward and specialist, passionate lecturers with industry experience. Our entry criteria require ideally a Level 3 qualification in Health and Social Care or a related subject, and at least a grade 4 in GCSE English and maths. We will consider prior learning, life experience, and/or work experience, but we will also explore alternative options with you to set you on your path to your goal.
