Health, Social Care and Counselling

Health and Social Care programmes provide the skills and knowledge needed to provide care and support to individuals in a variety of settings.

These programmes cover a wide range of subjects, including human anatomy, medical terminology, and patient care, with the aim to help you develop the personal skills and qualities needed for work in adult social care.

Health care professionals need strong communication and team working skills, the ability to pay attention to detail, to work on their own initiative and a genuine concern for the wellbeing of their patients or clients. Learn about healthcare policies, procedures, and ethical considerations. 

You will explore the opportunities available in the health and social care sectors with hands-on training and work placements.

Progress towards health care careers in nursing, midwifery, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, care work and a wide range of other supportive health professions. For careers in social care, the courses could lead to social work, work in mental health services, probation services and community/youth support work.
