Course Overview

Adult social care is a booming industry, and it’s growing every year – by 2025, it’s estimated that 2.63 million workers will be needed to fill roles within this sector. If you’d love to become a champion of health and social care and take on a wonderfully fulfilling role helping those who need it most, this accredited course will get you there.

You’ll learn how to promote the health, safety, and wellbeing of the people you care for, as well as how to minimise pain and discomfort. You’ll examine important issues such as safeguarding and protection, and infection control and prevention. Above all, you’ll learn how to treat the people you look after with dignity, respect, and compassion. As you learn, you’ll gain practical experience with a placement in an adult care setting, giving you the fully rounded education you’ll need to practice with confidence.

This course is ideal for anyone wishing to work at a residential home, a day centre, domiciliary care, or within clinical healthcare. You’ll enjoy the freedom to study in your own time, at your own pace, with engaging learning materials.

On this Adult Care course, you will:

  • Develop the knowledge needed to work in the healthcare sector
  • Examine the fundamental topics and subjects in health and social care
  • Gain practical work experience that’ll give you the advantage when you graduate
  • Thrive under expert supervision through your assignments at your own pace
    If you’re a people person – and we know you are – you’ll feel right at home with this course!
