Health and Social Care
“They say that apples don’t fall far from the tree but every apple has its own seeds which need to be understood and nurtured” - O.S Hickman
Studying health and social care at The King’s promotes the understanding of many important issues faced within today’s health and social care system. It is a discipline that equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary for further study and work in the sector by looking into key areas such as legislation changes, barriers that people in society may face, major life changes and their effects on people’s self-esteem.
The department takes great pride in its professional relationship with local employers and as students progress through their courses, they will be given opportunities to undertake work experience placements in a variety of settings that can include working with children, young adults, older adults or individuals with special needs. Ultimately, this helps students to make the connections between the theory they learn in the classroom to the wider world so that learning makes sense to them and has a clear purpose.
Beyond the classroom, we are keen for our students to learn about the importance of having good communication skills, being healthy, staying safe, and behaving respectfully so that they can become inspiration future health and social care professionals.
