Health and Social Care

On this course, you will work towards a Level 2 Health & Social Care Award. This qualification shows employers that you have reached a nationally recognised standard in this subject. This can help gain a job in childcare, nursing, working with elderly people and many other jobs where you have a duty of care.

There are two units that need completing: Unit 3 Person-centred Care and Unit 4 Safeguarding. The award is coursework based, with seven sub tasks within the two units.

You will learn about:
– equality and diversity
– a person-centred approach
– effective and practical ways to communicating

A key aspect of the course is learning how to develop a positive, professional approach to providing care that supports and empowers individuals who need services to help them in their daily lives. You will also learn about the signs of neglect and abuse and how we can safeguard and support others in need.

    «...I not only consider EMBS a college - I also see it as my family.... »

    «I arrived in this country four months ago, without any confidence in my English and really scared to be an independent person at sixteen. I didn't know what my next steps were since the education in my country is really different. One day, my aunt bought me to EMBS. At the beginning I was really insecure as I didn't even know how to use the bus and get there, it made me feel like a child surrounded by grown up people that didn’t understand me at all. Ever since I started to study here, everything negative that I used to feel has changed completely. I’ve got to meet amazing people like Jo and Jane, who took care of me and were concerned about my future. I’ve also got to make amazing friends like Aisha and Abner that always make me laugh and feel positive about life. Of course, this is not the only thing that the EMBS has given me: they also are deeply involved in my education and they help me in any way possible to achieve my purpose, which is go to university and study human rights. If I am being honest, I not only consider EMBS a college - I also see it as my family. »


    «...I really enjoyed my time at EMBS, meeting so many different people and making lots of fun and happy memories.... »

    «Before I came to EMBS I was very shy and often felt very awkward to start conversations with people around me, I never spoke unless I was spoken to but after a few months of being here I gained confidence and was able to communicate with other people comfortably, made good friends and feel like I knew myself. I really enjoyed my time at EMBS, meeting so many different people and making lots of fun and happy memories.»

    «Before I came to EMBS I was very shy and not confident, I used to be very afraid to speak English outside of college. But after several months, EMBS helped me to gain more confidence and especially improve my spoken and written English. The staff are really nice and friendly.»
