Both Health and Social Care and Childcare are quite complex industries to work in but both have very rewarding outcomes. They truly are industries you join because you want to not because of money. There is a lot of responsibility with this role and it is for this reason this course and the Level 1 Diploma are being offered.

These courses allow you the opportunity to study both areas at once so you can gain a better understanding of each area. Enabling you to make the right choice for you as to what you wish to pursue as a career.
