Health & Social Care

You can really make a difference to people’s lives working in care. You develop skills in caring for others across the care sector including working with older people, supporting those mental health issues, rehabilitation and healthy living.

I really like being at Shipley College because it is very multicultural and everyone has so much respect for each other. There were other colleges closer to where I live but I felt that Shipley College would give me the most opportunities for the future. The classes we have are always different and the tutors are really friendly. After this course, I would really like to go to university to continue to learn and one day, to fulfil my ambition of becoming a social worker.

The tutors are really down to earth and helpful which enables us to learn. I have helped my family to care for my grandad and would like to turn this in to a career. Since studying this course, I have found that I am very interested in mental health nursing and this is something I would like to progress after this course.
