Health and Social Care

Working in health and social care can be extremely rewarding.

Our health and social care courses and apprenticeships give students real experience in the health industry, whether in a hospital or caring for those in need - including the elderly and vulnerable - at a care home or in the community.

On our health and social care courses, you'll learn the skills necessary to succeed in the industry, including areas not covered by other colleges. Additionally, you'll gain a thorough understanding of equality, diversity, inclusion, healthcare legislation, and health and safety. These healthcare courses also provide opportunities for practical experience with employers such as North Middlesex University Hospital.
