Course description

It is appropriate for adults who have already achieved a Level 2 qualification in health and social care and for adults who are looking to develop their knowledge in this area or are looking to become employed in healthcare.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation and with health and safety of our students as a priority, we have redesigned this course to include a mixture of classroom-based and online learning.
