Course Description

An exciting opportunity to study current issues related to the expanding sector of health and social care. This is the largest employment field in the South West region and the foundation degree has close links with local employment trends. Health care and social care share a common core of values, skill base and underpinning knowledge that is reflected in this programme of study. Stage 1 of the programme introduces appropriate professional skills including communication and developing graduate skills as well as knowledge related to social change, health and social care legislation, social policy, lifespan development and understanding health and social care organisations. In Stage 2 students build on this knowledge and are encouraged to develop skills as independent learners, studying issues of equality and managing resources as well as carrying out a work based project and studies of professional practise. Foundation degrees stand alone as a qualification in their own right, but there are a number of routes open to you once you have successfully completed the foundation degree programme. For example, you could: - Use it to further your existing career - Start a new career pathway in the health and social care sector - Continue onto the Stage 3 Honours Degree at Plymouth University or Somerset College - Apply to continue your studies on another related programme
