Health & Social Care BTEC (History, Sociology)
Previous Institution: The Priory School
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.
Foundation Degree in Health & Social Care
I chose to study a Foundation degree in Health at Shrewsbury Colleges Group as I could study alongside my job at the time (in social work). I found the course manageable and worked hard to fit the work around my job/life. My tutors were super supportive as I was an adult learner returning to studying for the first time since school and things have moved on a bit since that time! I used the FD as a stepping stone to progress into a full degree in Health Studies at university and the skills learned enabled me to attain a first in my degree. I am now the co-owner of a business related to the health sector and have a great work/ life balance. I would recommend the course to potential students, young and old as I am not an academic person but was prepared to put the work in and it paid off for me.
Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care
Previous school: Shrewsbury Academy
I really enjoyed my placement at The Column Nursery. The staff there were very friendly and approachable. This placement has allowed me to develop my skills with younger children, which I think will help me whilst working towards my future career. I definitely recommend working with The Column Nursery.
