Find out more about the TEF.

This degree has been designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to meet local community requirements while working in the health and social care sector. It aligns with Government modernisation agendas including ‘Our Health, Our Care, Our Say’ and ‘Independence, Wellbeing and Choice: Our Vision for the Future of Social Care for Adults in England’, initiatives which aim to provide people with good quality health and social care in the community in which they live. You will be taught by academics who have a diverse range of health related skills and gain a thorough understanding of health and social care systems. This will enable you to provide and promote good health practice and community support, either within or outside the NHS workforce. A work placement will provide practical experience and enhance your employment prospects in a range of academic and professional disciplines.
