Health care and Social Care

As one of the most important service sectors in the UK, health and social care has received a lot of support from new government initiatives thus more and more professionals are employed and working in health and social care. Health and social care professionals require training that not only provides them with the skills and knowledge to treat and care for patients, but also provides service-users with more independence, choice and control.

As our population grows and ages, the UK needs more and more well-trained and multi-skilled carers for both health care and social care. There is a wide variety of rewarding employment opportunities available to care workers in the UK. Healthcare professionals and social care workers help and care for those in need or who are vulnerable which provides them with a unique sense of personal and career fulfillment.

Health and Social Care courses

There is a wide and far-reaching variety of health and social care courses available for health care and social care professionals. Training courses are designed for specific fields, and focus on areas that professionals need skills development and update training in.

Courses are also designed to cater for differing levels of expertise, and start with 'Introduction to Health and Social Care' and expand into very specific skills. Health care courses embrace all the goods and services designed to promote health, including preventive, curative and palliative interventions. Social care courses for social workers are designed to cover areas of social problems and integration including neglect and abuse, their causes, their solutions and their human impacts. Further along in healthcare careers there are training courses designed to help healthcare managers and management to lead and direct their health care teams.

Healthcare training courses

Health care professionals require a lot of training, and courses to keep them up-to-date with legislations and skills that help them care for their patients in the best and most qualified ways. Thus the training opportunities for healthcare workers and health care assistants are wide-ranging, and includes many levels of qualifications, degrees and certificates to prove the level of professional development achieved. Healthcare training courses offer theory and principle based skills including approaches to caring as well as specific policies and practices or focus on a particular aspect of provision. Courses in healthcare also cover issues of caring for those with mental health problems, palliative care or examining the role of complementary and alternative medicine. 

Healthcare courses are delivered as short healthcare courses for the public, or in house healthcare courses that are specific to your company, as well as distance learning healthcare courses that individuals study for either alongside their work, or ion order to further their career in healthcare.

Social Care / Social Work training courses

Social work and social care is an important area of health and social care in the UK. Social workers, or social carers provide an invaluable service to people and patients throughout the country. Social work includes the caring of patients, caring for people with disabilities, caring for children, and caring for the elderly.

Within social work training covers areas that develop carers professionally and lead to more effective social carers, more efficient workers and even lead into administrative or management positions.

Social workers may find themselves working in many different areas of social care, for which specific training is required. 

Hazard-and-risk-assessment-courses are designed for the type of organisation, which includes open / public social care courses, and for specific care homes in-house social care courses, and for those care workers who want to study alongside their work there are a variety of distance learning social care courses.
