Overview

This Health Community and Social Care course has a strong ethos of empowering and inclusive practice, with great emphasis on collaborative work with those who use, design and shape health or care services.

Students explore a broad range of issues for health and social care, across a range of different individuals and groups, around conditions or issues such as physical or intellectual impairment, growing older, mental health or drug and alcohol use. Health and care issues within different professional settings are expanded and linked to how practitioners can support people’s needs in their communities. Theory and literature about how people and communities behave and the importance of understanding and reflecting our own response to service users’ needs is also a key focus. There is a core theme of empowering practice and user-led approaches in health and social care practice throughout the programme.

Programme structure

Year 1 is foundational and provides an understanding of the contexts for health and social care. Students are introduced to theories concerning how people come to be placed and labelled as vulnerable, marginalised or problems in society. There is an exploration of the political and ethical influences on service provision, along with understanding effective skills in working with groups and individuals.

During Years 2 and 3, students have the opportunity to engage in much greater depth with a range of key issues, studying modules on leadership and management, social research, multi-agency working, advocacy, substance use and misuse, health and care needs of people, entrepreneurship and law and ethics.

Students develop the knowledge and understanding needed to be an effective worker in interdisciplinary and multi-agency working across a range of communities and care settings.
