Health & Social care
Our university-standard facilities
“I joined health and social care with the intention to progress on to level three and then to university to study nursing.
“I want to be a nurse supporting surgeons in the operating theatre, I find it fascinating and I am focussed on this as a career.
“To any other male considering a career in health and social care I’d say do it, we learn so much about lots of different subjects including policy, rules and regulations, care companies, management and skills development. It’s easy to start in health and social care and develop transferable skills. Career opportunities are endless including social working, teaching and youth working.”
“I want to work in a medical dispatch team, I’ve always wanted to help people, I eventually want to work my way up to be a paramedic technician.
“I want to go home at the end of the day knowing I’ve helped someone that day.
“I want a career where I’m doing something every day, helping and supporting the community will help me achieve this.
“My course is really good. It’s the most comfortable I’ve felt in my education. I’ve made new friends really quickly.”
“I chose health and social care because ultimately I want to go into biology, probably something like as a paramedic.
“This course will help me get the qualifications I need to then move on to the applied science course and then to start the career of my dreams.
“There aren’t many males on the health and social care courses but I recommend it, there are hundreds if not thousands of career opportunities in this sector.”
