Course summary

Whether you are starting a new career in health and social care or looking to enhance your employment and career progression opportunities within the sector, this Higher National Diploma (HND) offers you learning and development designed to prepare you for a professional role. This programme is designed to prepare you with underpinning knowledge, skills and understanding of employment within the health and social care sector at supervisory or management level. The programme has been designed to guide you in developing the skills to analyse and synthesise information critically developing an appreciation of the health and social care service provision. It is a suitable pathway of study for those already working in the sector who wish to gain practical skills and a formal NQF Level 5 qualification in order to progress to supervisor or junior management level roles. You will be taught through a combination of classroom based lectures and practical assignments. Throughout the course, you will be encouraged to undertake independent study to consolidate your learning and broaden your knowledge and understanding of the subject. The course covers core elements of health and social care and could include units such as psychology for health, facilitating change in health and social care and supporting significant life events. On completion of the first year, you will achieve a Higher National Certificate (HNC) and then have the opportunity to progress on to the second year for the HND.
