Health & Care
There will be a time in everyone’s lives when they need some care and support from a health and social care worker. Our health and social care courses are designed so you have the skills needed to work with some of society’s most vulnerable people, including the elderly, children, and adults with learning difficulties. We have a range of full time BTEC health and social care courses, from entry level up to higher education, and health and social care apprenticeships. We also offer part time health and social care training courses for those who cannot study full time and for those already working in the industry who want to further their qualifications.
