Our approach to the Health and Social Care curriculum
The Health and Social Care department’s aim is to equip future working professionals with the skills necessary to meet demands of the fast-paced, ever-changing industries of health, social care, and childcare settings.
Our curriculum facilitates rapid academic development by promoting independent learning, as well as honing students’ existing writing and research skills. We offer students opportunities to personally grow and develop their career interests and gain a practical understanding of the courses through varied volunteering and work experience opportunities.
All Health & Social Care staff have previous industry experience in a variety of fields and their dedication to the subject is endless, ensuring every student reaches their maximum potential. We look forward to you joining us in the future!
