Health & Social Care FAQs
'Health & Social Care has always been enjoyable for me and it was one of the best decisions that I have ever made, to take it as one of my courses, here at St Brendan's.
All of the modules that are covered in this subject are so interesting to learn and boost your knowledge incredibly around these areas. I particularly loved the Anatomy & Physiology unit, as it was taught through practical and theory-based learning.
This subject does require a lot of work outside of college, but the resources that are given online and support given by the teachers makes it a lot easier to manage. After this course, I am going to study Adult's Nursing at University, which this course helps significantly with.'

From this, I was completely inspired and I was able to decide on what I wanted to do after college with confidence. Teachers are extremely supportive and so passionate. I'm now going on to Staffordshire University to study Counselling Psychology.'
