View our range of courses

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.

You’ll learn the underpinning care values and understand how to support individuals and families across different stages of their lives.

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.
