Caring Professions

students studying from books

Our Caring Professions courses focus on the disciplines of health and social care, nursing and childcare. Our courses place a strong emphasis on gaining experience of working in a care setting, and are designed to support you to develop the specialised skills required in industry.

We have developed a wide range of strong links with local employers such as the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust and care and residential homes that will give you valuable first-hand experience of working in the sector.

You can study therapeutic counselling with us, which focuses on practical development and applying knowledge learned in seminars on work-based scenarios. Modules covered include working within a counselling relationship and working self-reflectively as a counsellor, amongst others. 

Our Early Childhood Studies courses provide an innovative response to specific sector needs for the professional development of childminders, pre-school learning leaders and early years practitioners. 

We also offer Professional Practice in Health and Social Care, awarded by Sheffield Hallam University. Future careers could be within Midwifery, Allied Health Professions and Social work.

What our students say

“I've always had a passion for nursing; undertaking the Access to Higher Education course was naturally the best step to take. The tutors are incredible; one was a registered nurse and uses their wealth of knowledge and experience of the industry to pass onto us. This course has helped me with my time management, self-led learning and is preparing me for the world of work.”

“The location is quiet and local to me, and this course will enable me to be able to go to University and study midwifery. There is a fantastic atmosphere amongst students and staff, with the staff being really supportive.”
