Health and Social Care

You can choose to progress to a wide range of careers in either a clinical or social care setting.

In the social care industry, you’ll provide a range of services to support both children and adults. Possible careers include social work, social-care work, care management, occupational therapy, or other related professions.

In clinical roles, you could be working in local GP surgeries, pharmacies, or hospitals, in a wide range of possible professions that include nursing, midwifery, mental health, and healthcare science.

The projects and assignments that you’ll complete are all based on realistic workplace situations and activities. You will learn in state-of-the-art industry-standard facilities. Each college has a hospital ward, a home care flat, and an immersive suite that can replicate a range of working environments.

This pathway has meaningful industrial placements in local settings with our network of partners, including our NHS partners, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

As of 2020, if you go on to a degree-level nursing, midwifery, or allied health course at university, you are guaranteed a £5,000 per year bursary to help with living costs. This does not need to be paid back!
