Make Caring Your Career...

Health and Social Care Diploma 

Forge a career in health and social care and start a role that really matters. Your career is all about helping people – that could be with physical, emotional or social needs – your support could prove to be life-changing.

We all pass through the day subconsciously getting things done – putting away the laundry upstairs, showering in the morning, making a cup of tea. These tasks are mostly part of our everyday life, but they’re also things we take for granted.

Imagine how frustrating it would be not being able to do these small tasks for yourself. Imagine how grateful you’d be if someone helped you – suddenly those tasks don’t seem so small. Being in a position to impact on the people you’re helping as your day job is an incredible result.

What Will I Do as a Health and Social Care Worker?

Health and social care is a broad sector and there are lots of different ways you can make an impact. You may see yourself in a role that covers both health care and social care as the values and qualities needed for these areas are very similar.

You can expect your day to be centred around helping and assisting people to lead an independent and fulfilled life. No two days are the same, and you’ll find it incredibly rewarding having such a positive impact on people’s lives.

There’s no doubt that health and social work is challenging – you’ll need to be resilient, patient and tolerant. At the end of the day you’ll be able to look back and know you’re doing an amazing job.
