Early Years and Health and Social Care

Early Years

If you’re passionate about helping, developing and educating young children (ages 0-5 years) then our Early Years courses are for you!

This sector has increasing prominence within the education sector, with new Government initiatives being announced over the last few years. These are exciting times to be working within this field.

We can give you the skills and knowledge you need to progress in this field, either to our Foundation Degree, to university or straight to employment. 

Completion of the full Level 3 course is needed for employment in this sector.

These courses could lead you to exciting and rewarding jobs, for instance; in primary school teaching, nursery provision or childcare opportunities.


Health and Social Care

If you’re passionate about helping people and want a rewarding career then one of our Health and Social Care courses is for you!

The Health and Social Care sector is the largest employer in the UK and provides a huge variety of work within its field, ranging from nursing, social work, work in the care community and even pharmacy. The sector is increasingly recognised for the central role that it plays in all aspects of society.

We can give you the skills and knowledge you need to progress in this field, either straight to employment, to university or to our new Level 4 HNC.

These courses could lead you to exciting and rewarding jobs, for instance; within social services, the health service or community based work.
