Our lecturers are subject specialists with years of experience in the sector, able to give you a real insight into the challenges and rewards of a career in health and social care. Throughout the course you’ll build a clearer picture of the diverse career opportunities in health and social care. A mandatory work placement will give you real experience of a health and care setting, and you'll get an insight into health and social care in different settings on our annual overseas trip. The full diploma is an A-Level equivalent course, giving you the UCAS points necessary to progress into higher education or the experience and knowledge to start seeking employment. And with Foundation and full degree-level courses available at the College you can continue to study with us, benefitting throughout your education from our unique support structure, small study groups and expert teaching.
Are you a compassionate person who wants to make a real difference in the lives of other people? If so, our courses will equip you with the knowledge and skills to start a fulfilling career in the health and social care sector.

After completing an undergraduate Sociology degree at the University of Glasgow, I was awarded Wellcome Trust funding to complete my MA and PhD in the History of Medicine at the University of Exeter. As an advocate of adult education, I moved from Higher Education to Further Education, completed my PGCE (+16) with the University of Greenwich and have coordinated the Health and Social Care Higher National courses at Wiltshire College & University Centre for the past 5 years. As an experienced External Examiner for Pearson, I also visit educational settings across the UK to assess the quality of Higher Education health and counselling courses.
