The college provision includes health care units specifically chosen for those who want to progress onto careers such as:
The Units covered place a strong emphasis on the core skills that will encourage independent working and develop the skills necessary to progress onto degree level.
The course covers units of study in Anatomy, Physiology and Health care; Sociology, Psychology; Study Skills / Research Skills and Numeracy.
