Free Book when you order this course!
The Complete A-Z Health & Social Care Handbook has been written to familiarise you with the language and terminology of the subject area. It is useful from the first day of studying advanced Health and Social Care right through to the night before your exams. The Handbook is invaluable for students of all advanced level courses and is also a useful resource for University students.

Student Profile
This course is for those who have an interest in Health and Social Care. Whether you have a goal to work as a nurse, social worker, health visitor or even as a paramedic, this course can provide you with the right stepping stone. Covering many of the important issues faced in the helping professions, this course provides one of the first steps to your success.

Study Method
The course is designed for study by distance learning at work or at home.  Students receive course manual, assignments and study guide plus tutor support.

Successful students will receive an Open College Network (OCN) Level Three certificate in Health and Social Care which carries 9 learning credits towards future studies. You will also receive a UK Open Learning Diploma in Health and Social Care.

OCN Information
OCNs work with organisations providing your learning to ensure that the way the course is assessed is of the highest quality and is suitable for the people who wish to take it.
As a learner on an OCN approved course you are entitled to earn credits for the work that you do. For each successful course you complete, you will be awarded a certificate detailing the number of credits you have achieved.
You can then use your credits to move to a higher level of learning, or to prove to an employer or anyone else that you have obtained new skills and knowledge. OCN credits are generally accepted as a means of entry to further study by Further and Higher Education providers and by a large number of employers and trainers.
You can use your credits to demonstrate your achievements and prove that you have knowledge and skills in a wide range of subjects. Depending on which level of course you take, you can use the credits to progress on to other courses.

Qualification Terms Explained
Recent development in England have meant that the terms Diploma, Certificate and Award now have specific meanings and can only relate to qualifications approved by Ofqual, the government regulatory authority. Consequently, our Open College Network courses will henceforth have the description ‘…a course validated by Open College Network’. This in no way diminishes the value or importance of the course but rather avoids the vagueness associated with the above terms. Should you need further information concerning this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Assessment takes the form of a series of assignments, which are completed by the student then sent to the tutor by e-mail or post for marking.
There is no word count for the assignments. However, you must prove to the tutor that you have fully understood the questions asked.

Entry Requirements
A reasonable level of literacy is required as this is a Level Three course but otherwise there are no entry requirements, just a keen interest in the subject.

The programme takes place over a timescale to suit the student. Once the student is registered, tutor support is available for up to one year or until completion whichever is sooner.

The programme is home- or work-based enabling students to complete the course without having to attend scheduled college teaching sessions.

Tutor Support
Throughout the course, students will receive tutor support by email and by post. This will be for 12 months from the date you receive the course. To complete the full course it will take in the region of 100 study hours which can be spread over a 12 month period.

Extra Online Support
The tutor has now set up a forum for all of our students studying Health Care and related courses. This will assist you with your studies, as not only will you get full tutor support from a professional tutor for the duration of the course, you will also get help from other students who are studying at the same time and also get an insight to other related courses by talking to them
