Health and Social Care

Health and Social Care looks at all aspects of health and social care provision. You may be interested in a career or job in nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, dietetics, mental health, speech therapy, social work, social care work, probation services, working with children, such as teaching, child psychology or children’s services. The options are endless and varied. Due to new government initiatives, there is a greater demand for well-trained and multi-skilled professionals in this area. The profile of Health and Social Care is growing rapidly.

Health & Social Care is most suited to students who do well at coursework and who prefer active learning styles such as discussion, leading a teaching session, producing a display, giving presentations and interviewing people. It is also a good subject for students who like to meet people as they are expected to make contact with work settings and interview people.
