The college will remain CLOSED tomorrow (Friday 15 January 2021) due to adverse weather and the likelihood of ice.

Students due to attend the Derby Road campus tomorrow (specifically, those with an EHCP, disability, learning difficulty or other vulnerability, or children of key workers who have chosen to access the site) should log-on to Microsoft Teams for their timetabled online lessons. We will be back to normal on Monday (18 January 2021) for those students eligible to attend on site. College buses and special transport will operate as normal from Monday.

Health and Social Care - Higher Apprenticeship - Level 4

Entry requirements

You will need to be aged 16 years and over and in a senior position with a Level 3 Lead Adult Care Worker or equivalent.

You will need to be working within a health and social care environment for a minimum of 16 hours per week.

You will undertake a Level 2 diagnostic assessment for maths and English prior to enrolment.

Study programmes

It is an entry requirement for some courses to have gained GCSEs A*-C in English and maths (see entry requirements). If the entry requirements to a course do not require A*-C in these subjects, and you haven’t already gained GCSEs A*-C in English and maths before joining us, you will continue to study English and maths as part of your programme and take appropriate qualifications in these subjects with the aim of achieving A* to C grade. In addition, to help you gain essential skills for employment, every student aged under 19 and studying a full-time course at college will take part in our study programmes alongside their main subject qualification.
