Course summary

A rehabilitation worker in visual impairment is a specialist who works with people who have experienced or who are living with sight loss. This person is qualified to offer professional assessments and to develop a programme based on an individual's needs, with the aim of enabling someone to become as independent as possible in their daily life. Our Foundation degree is accepted as the trusted qualification to be employed as a rehabilitation worker, and by studying here you will be based at the most accessible and largest educator of rehabilitation workers in the UK. Upon successful completion, you can progress on to one of two part-time top-up degrees, either BSc (Hons) Specialist Complex Needs Rehabilitation Work (Visual Impairment) or BSc (Hons) Habilitation Work – Working with Children and Young People.
