Course summary

**Note: Due to the course delivery location and visa restrictions, this course is NOT available to international students requiring a Student Visa**.**Location**: FdSc Health, Wellbeing and Social Support is a two-year course run by Stockton Riverside College (01642 865400) and Redcar and Cleveland College (01642 473132) in partnership with Teesside University and local health and social care employers.**Course overview**: This foundation degree is ideal if you are seeking a career working in health and social care and want to learn in a practical way. There is significant vocational focus to the programme and a range of work experiences and/or placement settings are available to help you develop your learning in practice, such as working with older people, children and adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health issues and substance misuse issues. You are required to complete 150 hours placement a year in a care setting environment.The approach we take is to facilitate and support your learning and develop independent, reflective learners in preparation for lifelong learning, and continuing personal and professional development. You develop an understanding of the theory underpinning care practice, which will enhance the quality of care you provide for your clients either in work or on placement. The content of the curriculum is strongly influenced by the principles of wellbeing and prevention, and the recognition that an individual, their family and/or carer must be enabled to make decisions about their own care.**After the course**: After successfully completing this course you can seek employment as a support worker or healthcare assistant. There may also be opportunity for progression on to a part-time top-up degree or access to relevant pre-registration health or social work programmes.
