Health & Social Care
Why Study Health & Social Care?
Do you want to understand more about people's personal and health care needs?
Are you interested in finding out how care services work?
If you've answered yes to these questions an Advanced Health & Social Care course may suit you.
It provides an ideal qualification for those who want to progress to higher education or further training in this area, or to employment in sought after careers such as:
- Social Work
- Nursery Nursing
- Complementary Therapies
- Occupational Therapy
- Youth and Community Work
- The Police
- Probation Services
These sessions offer extra support and guidance with mock interviews, personal statements, university applications, progress reviews and action planning. Aim Higher allows you to work with other high achieving students and take your studies just that little bit further.
These classes take place on Wednesday afternoons and offer you the chance to get additional qualifications in areas like First Aid and Pre-Teaching.
They will help you with university and job applications as admissions tutors and employers are interested in students who have a little bit extra on their CVs.
Our results have been outstanding in previous years, with above 95% pass rate since 2000.
