Health and Social Care

We have a range of health and social care courses available at Nottingham College to cater for a variety of career choices.       

Studying with us will give you the knowledge and experience to thrive in the growing and rewarding care sector, whether you want to work with adults with disabilities, health problems or those needing other types of support.

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

All our students benefit from a supportive learning environment and you will be in safe hands with our teaching staff who have extensive and current industry experience.

We also work closely with the area’s top employers, including Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. Most of our courses include work experience and we have many links with local hospitals, voluntary organisations and care homes.

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

With a huge demand for employees within health and social care, there are plenty of opportunities for progression and for a job in which many people say they feel their work is rewarding and makes a difference to people’s lives.

Levels

We offer a variety of courses at Nottingham College, ranging from Level 1 to Level 3.
