About the course
If you work in health and social care, investing in your professional development can be a powerful way to move your career forward. Getting a better understanding of client or patient conditions, and learning how best to improve their care, will put you in a much stronger position to progress.
You'll work with college tutors with extensive experience in health and social care, as well as teaching. They'll be there to support and guide you as you learn and develop your skills, through a mix of theory and practice modules.
During term-time, you'll spend a day a week studying in college. You'll also do practice-based modules at work so you can apply your new knowledge and skills in your job. You'll receive support from a work-based mentor throughout.
If you work as an assistant practitioner, this is an excellent way to develop and move your career forward.
