AT A GLANCE
This Foundation Degree is balanced between theory and practice and taught by an experienced team with backgrounds in nursing, social work and residential and community care.
There is an ever-increasing need for qualified health and social care practitioners due to our growing and ageing population.
This course has been designed with employers in the sector to help their staff respond to this challenge in the years ahead.
The overall aim of the course, which is mapped to Higher Apprenticeship standards, is to bring those already employed in a suitable setting up to the standard required to work as assistant practitioners, who play a vital role in delivering support and clinical practice.
Delivered in partnership…
This course is delivered in partnership with the University of the West of England (UWE).
So students get the best of both worlds – the enhanced support and increased contact with lecturers that sets us apart, and full access to all the resources and facilities at UCW and a nearby university.
