Health and Social Care

Our courses allow you to explore a wide range of health and social care areas whilst gaining the knowledge, skills and experience you need to work in the industry. We have developed two career pathways following advice from employers and universities; a medical, nursing and midwifery pathway and a general care pathway.

All of our health and social care courses provide you with the opportunity to undertake a relevant and inspiring work placement as well as attend lessons that will develop your practical skills across areas such as working with older people and people with specific needs. We have strong links with employers in the region including local hospitals, care homes and schools so that you can use your placement to develop your employability skills in the area of your choice.

T Level in Health and Science

This T-Level course is for students who wish to pursue a career in adult nursing. T-Levels have been introduced gradually over the last 3 years in England as a route into a wide number of health-related careers. As this is a new course the content is aligned with the skills and knowledge required to work in adult nursing right now and in the future.

Students will be able to utilise specialist equipment in bespoke classrooms and take part in classes where they will learn about a wide range of important factors to prepare them for the transition to industry.

Industry Work Placements play a vital part of the T-Level programme and students will spend over 315 hours with 1 or 2 employers over the 2 years.

Real-life stories

Jasmine Messenger Health and Social Care

Jasmine was inspired to study Health and Social Care after her cousin’s positive experience at college.

“I wanted to be a nurse since I was little. My cousin also inspired me as she did the course and told me that she had an amazing experience. She’s now doing Radiography, so she’s got quite far in her career with it. I like learning about disorders, we’re doing it at the minute and I find it quite interesting. You learn about all the different types of disorders and how they can affect a person. I enjoyed the placement that I did on the course which I found interesting. The placement was based in my village, so it was only a two-minute walk which was very convenient for me.”

Future careers and opportunities for our students

Students on the Health and Social Care courses available at college have the opportunity to hear from a range of speakers a few times a year, alongside gaining valuable work experience hours with local employers.
