Course summary

Overview

A health and wellbeing role are crucial in enabling some people to achieve an enjoyable and fulfilling life. You can make a significant difference by providing support and guidance to people when they need it, whatever their age. As work-based practice is a key part of this course you have the potential to earn whilst you learn. You will study with likeminded people across a range of other related professional roles based in your own community. Local delivery of the course in a study group supports you to be successful in your study and the requirement of attendance at two weekend (Friday evening and Saturday daytime) study sessions each year is structured to support you to engage with students on your course from across the country.

This course is provided by the University of Worcester's Partner Institution the Learning Institute and is delivered both online and at Learning Institute centre venues which range across Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, London and Somerset, (though not on the University of Worcester campus). The running of the degree and of individual groups will be subject to minimum numbers.

Key features

  • The use of weekly learning sessions, either face-to-face learning in local venues or online, enabling you to balance study, work and home demands.
  • Work based learning provides you with a key opportunity to connect your academic and professional learning with the expectation that students have access to 10 hours per week across the study year.
  • You will share your study with students across a small number of interrelated programmes.
  • There is the opportunity to progress to a BSc top-up on completion.
