Health, Social Care and Counselling

Newbury College health and social care programmes are designed to enable progression into a broad range of health and social care-related fields.

The courses aim to help students develop the personal skills and qualities needed for work and also help students achieve their full potential.

Health care professionals need strong communication and team working skills, the ability to pay attention to detail, to work on their own initiative and a genuine concern for the wellbeing of their patients or clients.

Students will explore the opportunities available in the health and social care sectors. A valuable aspect of the courses is the work experience available in a wide range of placements.

Students can progress towards health care careers in nursing, midwifery, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, care work and a wide range of other supportive health professions.

For careers in social care, the courses could lead to social work, work in mental health services, probation services and community/youth support work.

At the end of the Level 3 course students can progress to the workplace, or on to university for further study.
