What can this course lead to?
On successful completion of this course you would have the opportunity for entry into higher education in nursing, midwifery, social work, psychology and many other related health and social care professions.
If you decide that higher education is not for you then this course will give you the opportunity for employment within a health or care setting, for example, you could be employed to work in a registered care home or in a hospital.
In order to show you interest in this subject you will be required to complete a minimum of one week work placement in a relevant health or social care setting in your own time and to bring a letter of reference with you before the sixth form registration day in September.
