Part Time

If you are an adult looking to get back into education but don’t have the right qualifications and want to progress to university, our Access to HE course is for you!

Working in the care sector, you will develop skills in caring for others including working with older people, supporting those with mental health issues, rehabilitation and healthy living.

On this course, you can choose between the Social Sciences or Health & Social Care pathway, depending on the career path you are interested in.

“The Access Course has enriched me with personal development and academic skills, as well as skills such as time management, organisation, and creativity. All this has increased my confidence and determination to go on to university. I am highly grateful to the College and its tutors in helping me reach towards my potential in academic studies. I definitely made the right choice to study at Shipley College, and would recommend it to others.”
