Health and Social Care

Studying our HND Health and Social Care is your opportunity to take big professional and academic leaps towards helping improve the day-to-day lives of vulnerable people. With access to excellent facilities and an extensive range of work placements, you can gain the skills, knowledge and understanding you’ll need to embark on a genuinely rewarding career in this sector. The health and social care sector is vast, and this Foundation Degree course gives you an excellent opportunity to begin developing the values, skills and knowledge so essential to good health and social care practice in the UK. These can support your initial development in providing valuable support for people of all ages and walks of life who have disabilities or mental health issues, or are vulnerable in other ways. The course is linked closely to the UK government’s agendas for health and social care, so we offer you the chance to experience a current and carefully considered balance of policy, practice and academic training. Join us as we explore the principles of care, care planning and delivery, the ethical aspects of care, and areas such as health promotion and safeguarding, among many more – with learning that focuses on the workplace environment. We’ll support you every step of the way as you learn how to collaborate across professional boundaries, use evidence to support your professional decision-making, and enhance your understanding of critical issues in health and social care. Our focus is on helping you become a knowledgeable, compassionate, and person-centred care professional.
