Social Care and Well-being (Older Person)

Our foundation degree course focuses on the needs of older people, both as recipients of care and deliverers of care - and how the experience of ageing differs between individuals and societies. Explore approaches to promoting well-being and delivering social care. Our BSc (Hons) Social Care and Well-being (older person) course will consider what it means to be an ‘older person’. It will draw on the different experiences and approaches for promoting well-being and providing care and support for those who experience health or social problems and those who care for them. The course content includes: policy issues, cultural aspects of ageing, life-course, sociological and psychological theories and ethical and legal aspects. The course will cover the common health and social care issues impacting on societies and how this affects the lived experience of being ‘older’. Alongside the theoretical side of the course, your development as an individual is promoted through the development of skills for life-long learning. These include interpersonal skills, personal development planning and other skills that will enhance your employability. Different assessment approaches will help you focus on areas of interest and develop critical analysis skills. Our course team will facilitate insight experiences to help develop understanding of the sector and to help you apply theory to practice. The course content consists of shared modules with students undertaking the BSc (Hons) Social Care and Wellbeing degree and specific modules that explore the needs of older people.
