Who is it for?
This course is designed for learners who wish to understand more about dementia and will be highly valuable to people who support those with the condition, in a personal or professional capacity.
There are no specific recommended prior learning requirements for this course, although it is expected that learners will be working – or intending to work– in a health-care setting. However, as this is a knowledge-based qualification, there is no requirement to demonstrate competence. As such, access to a health-care setting is not a requirement. Good numeracy and literacy skills are advantageous.

I took Health & Social Care because I want to be a primary school teacher. It is an assignment based course, so there is less pressure and you get to do amazing placements for hands-on experience and I went to a primary school. I will be going to study BA Primary Education after College.

Currently, I am a student midwife at De Montfort University in Leicester. Being able to study Health and Social Care and A Level Biology helped me prepare for university and provided me with the vocational skills and experiences, together with the academic ability, which gave me a significant advantage in an extremely competitive course and profession.
