Health, Care and Life Sciences Skills & Careers Academy

From nursing, occupational therapy, dietetics, midwifery, social work, complementary therapies to radiography, you’ll be on the right path to the job you want with our Health and Social Care courses – rated as Good by Ofsted.

We have a wide range of work placements available, giving you that all-important hands-on experience, and you’ll be closely supported by a team of caring staff.

Our apprenticeship scheme helps you to earn while you learn, and it will also stand you in good stead for Higher Education and ultimately roles such as managing care homes. Or if you’re already working in the sector you could gain new knowledge and skills with a foundation degree.

Courses in Care for young men – with great job prospects!

At Sandwell College, we have hundreds of young women studying for qualifications in Health Care, Social Care and Childcare – but hardly any young men. Which is odd, because hospitals, schools, care homes and nurseries are desperate to have men apply for the jobs they have on offer.

There are jobs for the boys in care (as well as for girls), and Sandwell College is looking for young men aged 16-18 to join our courses in September and aim for one of those jobs in the future. And don’t worry, we have plenty of places left for female applicants, too!
