How does studying for a health and social care course online work?

Online health and social care courses allow adults to retrain around their jobs and other commitments while being fully supported by the help of a personal, distance learning tutor. Choosing to study health and social care online gives you flexibility and freedom that you may struggle to receive from a traditional educational provider.

You’re given a deadline to complete the course, but the rest is up to you. You can study whenever you like, whether it’s on a bus or in the middle of the night. The power is in your hands.

What is a health and social care course?

Health and social care is an umbrella term for courses that focus on helping others. Just some of the subjects that fall under this remit include retirement planning, diabetes care in children and young people, and mindfulness.

This means that once you’re qualified in general health and social care, your career can evolve as your interests do. You can practice a specific specialism and then pivot to another when and if you feel that you want to do something different but don’t want to retrain entirely. You really can carve your own health and social care career path.

Why is health and social care important?

While all roles differ, those working in health and social care provide an invaluable service to people within the community. They often offer support – either emotional, physical, or social – that allows people in need to continue to live a normal and fulfilling life. Some roles also help protect vulnerable members of society from abuse.

Health and social care is a varied, interesting and incredibly rewarding career path that can involve working with the very young through to the very old, while helping those in need navigate a diverse range of situations.
