Health & Social Care

Health and Social Care combines elements of sociology, biology, nutrition, law, and ethics. It is a first step towards a career caring for people and communities.

Students learn to support people with a wide range of needs, from babies and toddlers to adults and the elderly. Pathways are opened enabling students to become care assistants, doctors, nurses, social workers, paramedics, counsellors, or a range of other related occupations.
