At Nottingham College, we’re proud to offer a range of health and social care courses that prepare students for careers in the caring profession, helping to build a fairer and healthier world for all. From nursing to social work, our courses cover a range of disciplines, allowing students to find the path that’s right for them

What courses do you offer?

Whether you’re looking to kick-start your career in a caring profession or are already working in the sector and want to up-skill with a short course, we have lots of flexible study options — some of them are fully funded!

  • Access to Higher Education — Our Access courses are designed for those aged 19+ who want to go to university but don’t currently hold the right qualifications. Our health related Access courses are ideal if you are looking to go into professions which require a university level qualification, for example nursing and midwifery.
  • T Level courses — One of our most exciting offerings is our T‑Level Technical Qualification in Health. This two-year course combines classroom learning with industry placements, giving students the chance to gain practical experience and develop their skills in a real-world setting. Our T‑Level courses are designed in collaboration with employers and businesses to ensure that students graduate with the skills that are in demand in the industry.
  • Health and Social Care
    We offer lots of full and part-time courses in health and social care including a range of short online courses perfect for CPD if you’re currently working in the sector.
  • Early Years
    Our Early Years courses are ideal if you want to work with children in a childcare or education setting. We also offer a range of short online courses which are ideal for those currently working in this sector who are looking to up-skill.

I’m passionate about working with kids with special education needs. My end goal is to work in a school. The support I receive from my tutors have been incredible. The feedback they give us on the work we do really helps me understand what I’ve done right and wrong, as a result makes me better at what I do. 

 — Fraya Brown, Health and Social Care student


If you’re an adult aged 19+ looking to get back into education then funding and finance options are available to help you continue your studies. Depending on certain eligibility your chosen course could be completely free!

If you choose to study an Access course funding is available through an Advanced Learner Loan. If you progress onto a university course on completion of your Access Course you don’t repay your Access Course fees!

The government’s National Skills Fund programme also offers funding to adult learners aged 19+ studying a full-time course in a number of subject areas.

You can find out more about funding options on each individual course page.
