The HND in Health and Social Care is a direct progression from the HNC in Health and Social Care.

The course team, working in partnership with local employers, will enable you with professional and technical education thereby providing you with a clear line to employment or to progression to a degree at Level 6.
Emphasis on practical skill development alongside the requisite knowledge and understanding is an important component of the course. You will learn through applied practical work and develop skills to critically analyse information and develop knowledge skills and behaviours needed to succeed in the workplace.
