HNC: Social Services (social care) is designed to meet the registration requirements to work in social care settings and is aimed at those who have some experience in working in care in either a paid or voluntary capacity.
This is a 12 credit award with most of the units applied to work experience and placements. If you are a full-time student, placements will be arranged by the College to ensure that you can be supported in the application of theory and gain experience to evidence competency in the three work-based SVQ units integral to the course.
