This is essentially the same course as the NQ Health and Social Care. It aims to equip you with a thorough knowledge of human growth and development. Through theoretical study and placement, the skills required to work in health and social care settings will be enhanced.

This course is part of the Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP) and provides the skills and entry requirements you need to progress to Higher Education.
