Health and Social Care

Whether you want to work with adults with disabilities or health problems, or those needing other types of support, our health and social care courses will give you the knowledge and experience to carve out a career in the growing and rewarding care sector.

If you already have experience in this sector, you can improve your job prospects by building on your existing qualifications, by using your experience and knowledge to gain a formal qualification. 

You’ll benefit from fantastic facilities at either our Basford or City Hub campuses. Most courses include work experience and we have many links with local hospitals, voluntary organisations and care homes. Our teaching staff have extensive and current industry experience and offer a supportive learning environment. We also work closely with the area’s top employers, including Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. 

After completing your course you can choose to go into employment with the skills you’ve learned, or to progress onto a university-level course. 

The number of roles available in the caring profession is rising across Nottinghamshire, so these courses are a great choice if you are looking for a direct route into employment.
