Health & Social Care

A career in health and social care is highly rewarding and extremely diverse. With careers ranging from nursing to midwifery, the opportunities are almost endless.

With no two days ever the same, working on health and social care will see you helping others to be healthy and to live as happily and independently as possible. As part of your studies with us, you’ll develop a range of knowledge on topics including physiological disorders, anatomy and physiology, dementia care - and lots more.

You’ll also undertake a range of placements across a variety of career paths, to give you the hands-on practical experience to help you progress in this rewarding career.

You can also continue your journey with us, as we also offer a Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care, which means so you can go even further in your career without ever leaving TyneMet.
