Health, Social and Childcare


Staff in the School of Health, Social and Childcare are industry experts as well as lecturers. Our supportive and caring lecturers are committed to ensuring students success. We provide courses from Level 2 through to BSc. Honours Degree level, meaning students can progress through the School from Further Education to Higher Education programmes and into employment. All students complete a related work based placement, with a focus on employability skills and improved numeracy and literacy. Students are also encouraged to complete a Welsh Language communication course and enhance their interpersonal skills through group activities and fundraising events. The School offers commercial health, social and childcare training to local authorities. All students undertake charity and fundraising work throughout the year for local and national charities.

Dynamo role models (experts from the industry) come into the school to give talks to the students. The Head of School chairs the Colegau Cymru HSC Network and sits on working groups in the local area in partnership with the local authority and related organisations. Our courses can lead to a career as a teacher, teaching assistant, childcare practitioner, speech and language therapist, nurse, paramedic, social worker and more. We offer full-time, part-time, daytime, evening and short courses.
