Course summary

**About Keele**Set in 600 acres of countryside in North Staffordshire, we have one of the largest and most beautiful campuses in Britain. We’re proud to Top 10 in England for Overall Student Satisfaction (broad-based, public universities, NSS 2021), investing more than £140m in our campus in the last ten years, including £45m new science laboratories. In 2021 we were proud to be awarded Global Sustainability Institution of the Year at the prestigious International Green Gown Awards as part of our mission to become a carbon neutral campus by 2030. We're committed to supporting you to achieve your career goals, and have a dedicated Careers and Employability team who can assist you to navigate your options beyond Keele.**Foundation Year**The course will provide you with the requisite science knowledge, enhance your study skills and give you an introduction to the employability skills required by health professionals. The Health Foundation Year is a well established and successful course which offers progression onto the full range of health degrees at Keele. The Health Foundation Year offers an opportunity for students to enter a degree course in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who do not meet the necessary criteria for direct entry. This is often because they have not studied the subjects required or because they have gained non-traditional qualifications. The programme of modules is tailored to the student’s chosen degree route. **Learning Disability Nursing**After you have completed the Health Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) approved Learning Disability Nursing programme which will enable you to become a confident and competent learning disability nurse. You will gain practical placement experience to equip you with all of the skills required to support individuals with a learning disability to lead a healthy and valued life.The philosophy of care and support for people with learning disabilities is one of partnership in which the nurse works alongside the person to support them to lead a healthy and valued lifestyle and to exercise their rights as members of society. The course at Keele helps students to learn about and apply this philosophy to the many different services for people with learning disabilities. The course will also equip you with the appropriate knowledge and skills to work with people with learning disabilities who have more complex and specialist needs. Clinical skills are an essential part of the course and students have access to expert staff in the Clinical Skills Laboratories to help develop and assess their practice.The University also provides excellent support through its personal tutor system. Wider benefits of enrolling on our courses include; experienced student support, excellent IT and library facilities, preparation for a range of roles as a professional learning disability nurse and a range of practice based experience whilst you study.
