Health Care and Early Years

A career in health care and early years is perhaps one of the most rewarding, as you are called upon to use your skills in supporting and educating others through the most influential, or critical periods of their lives. Acquiring these skills and being suitably qualified is therefore essential if you want to care for children, young people and vulnerable adults.

If you want a fulfilling career in child care, early years, health and social care and counselling, you will receive top quality training and guidance from tutors who have worked in a variety of professions including, teaching, nursery nursing, youth work, care for the elderly and medical nursing.

You will work in a challenging and friendly environment with supportive fellow learners and staff who are committed to
helping you achieve your goals. Lessons are hands-on, creative and practical, and you will benefit from a work placement, so you’ll be work-ready by the time you complete your pathway.
