A Level 1 or 2 qualification in Health & Social Care or Child Care is designed to enable you to enter employment at a trainee or apprenticeship level or to progress onto a level 3 qualification. The Level 3 qualification allows you to progress into employment, continue training and apprenticeships in the workplace, or move on to university for training in nursing, social work, education and other related professions. Previous students have gained places on degree courses such as BA (Hons) Community Work, BSc (Hons) in Adult Nursing or Social Work as well as BA (Hons) Early Years Education at a range of institutions including Bournemouth University and Southampton University.
Additionally, students can apply to study the FdSc (Foundation Degree) in Health and Social Care at Weymouth College (validated through the University of Plymouth), undertaking work experience alongside their degree.
