ABOUT THE COURSE

This course provides an introduction to health and social care, developing your communication and IT skills, as well as the practical and technical skills needed to work in the sector. You will study the role of the carer, exploring their responsibilities, identifying the needs of others, as well as understanding the variety of jobs in the industry. You will also get to look more closely at personal care and learn how to create activities and learning experiences for both children and adults.

Our teachers are currently planning for the safest ways to deliver this course from September. We have been delivering all of our courses online since the outbreak of Coronavirus in March 2020, and we are fully equipped to continue this for as long as is necessary. We hope to be able to deliver the course in a mixed format - blending online lessons with face-to-face teaching – as and when we feel that, on the basis of Government advice and our own risk assessments, it is safe to do so. The ratio of face-to-face teaching in our college buildings to online teaching will vary from course to course, so more specific information will be provided to you at enrolment.
