Course summary

If you lack formal qualifications but have the drive and passion to succeed in University and work toward your career goals in health, social care or working with children, this one year course is a pathway onto the degree that will help you achieve your dreams.

Successful completion of the programme provides an entry qualification into a range of UWTSD care related diploma and bachelors programmes.

Course Overview

This unique programme is designed as a ‘feeder’ into any one of the Health Portfolio degree programmes. We will support and develop your knowledge and ability in the core concepts, theories and underpinning knowledge of health and social care, as well as the skills and rigour needed to achieve in higher education.

The Cert Care is offered as a ONE YEAR flexible route qualification. This means you are able to pass this course then begin the first year of the HND, FdSc, BSc or DipHE of your choice (either in Health and Social Care, Health Management, Health and Care of Children and Young People or Nursing).

Career Opportunities

We have a very strong employment support and work experience system within the Health Portfolio. We work with three health boards as well as a variety of public and private organisations, companies and charities in the Health Sector within West Wales to build opportunities for all our students.

Every student who passes this course will be given a first choice place on the degree programme of their choice within the Health Portfolio. You may also be able to use this as entry onto other courses.
