Health and Social Care

Want to work in the health and social care sector? This one-year Foundation Certificate is an ideal introduction to health and social care related courses. You’ll be encouraged to take an evidence-based approach and adopt a broad and critical stance in relation to health issues and inequalities on this work-based learning programme. Develop your skills to prepare you for further study which can lead to employment within the youth justice systems, NHS trusts, private hospitals, children's services, social services, family centres as well as children's homes. You will get the opportunity to undertake a practice placement module which consists of 100 hours; this will allow you to develop a range of work based skills to help contribute to the development of a professional portfolio. Previous students have successfully been offered jobs as a direct result of placement performance.
