Childcare, health and social care jobs can be very rewarding, with the potential to help care for people of all ages in a wide range of work settings. The choice of jobs is diverse, from the medical treatment of patients to working in a nursery.
With jobs in both the NHS and the private sector available, healthcare is a major employer in the UK. There are a number of different types of career within the industry, to suit a variety of people. If you know that you would like a career working with children, then childcare courses offer a great way to progress from Entry Level to Foundation degrees. Many childcare students then go on to higher education too.
