Do you want to make a real difference to people’s lives and ensure the safety of vulnerable adults and children? Working in health and social care can be extremely rewarding. This Health and Social Care Level 2 course is awarded by TQUK, an Ofqual regulated awarding body, designed to help students develop the practical knowledge and skills they need to prepare for a career in social work.
The Health and Social Care Level 2 course is ideal for anyone wishing to work in a wide range of roles in the health and social care sector.

Who is this course for?
We designed this course mainly for two types of individuals, the ones who want to start their career in health and social care and the ones who are already professionals in the UK Care Sector.
The first group will solely need this course for their complete understanding and step by step guide to becoming a professional carer. However, the second group can enrich their status as a well-trained individual in the UK Care Sector.
This is a work-based course that requires workplace assessment. This can be work carried out on a part-time, full-time, paid or voluntary basis.
To excel at your academics, it is always advised to have an instructor guide and help you throughout the course. As part of our course, we give our students full access to our dedicated tutor support service here the instructor will guide you or erase any doubt via email or live chat throughout our course.
