Certificate in Health and Social Care at SCQF Level 5

Course Content

This course offers an opportunity for progression to further academic study in the fields of health or social care on either our Access to Nursing course or our Advanced Certificate in Health and Social Care. Alternatively, on successful completion of the program, you could join one of our vocational pathways as either a Modern Apprentice or as a student on our Health and Social Care Academy. The practical based element of these programmes, in conjunction with support from partner agencies in the fields of health and social care, provide learners with an opening to employment. Our full-time level 5 programme is just the beginning of the journey towards employment or further study in this demanding but rewarding field.
