A programme in Health & Social Care at The City of Liverpool College can lead to a career where you can make a real difference.

Working in this sector can be deeply fulfilling and helps the welfare of people in communities across the country. All our Health & Social Care courses offer a comprehensive, structured programme designed to challenge, engage and inspire our students into fulfilling their potential. 

We help students into nursing which is one of the most competitive industries:  100,000 applicants for 20,000 places in adult nursing last year. On average 300 students are interviewed for every 15 places on Child Nursing, 45 for each midwifery place. In 2013 applications were up 27% with this trend set to rise each year. 

This is why where you study is so important. Our Level 3 students are the most employable, Ofsted say so.  Learners who succeeded with us this year progressed into employment as Health Care Assistants, into Higher Education to study Adult nursing, Paediatric nursing, Operating Department Practitioners.  Some of our learners attained exclusive positions in highly sort after positions as Paramedics, Midwives, Social Worker and also in Teacher Training. Students have secured these places at  highly rated Universities across the Northwest including Liverpool John Moores, Edge Hill, Chester and Salford.

This vocational career path requires compassionate, independent candidates to help vulnerable people face challenges in their lives. Working in this sector you will handle lots of different situations with disadvantaged families, people with mental disabilities, young people and elderly people who struggle with mobility. 

Advanced study loans opens doors...

Health and social care is a highly vocational sector, meaning a significant number of our learners are adults changing direction in their career or returning learners after starting a family. That's why we offer the Advanced Learning Loan. Twenty-five year old Access to Higher Education student, Robyn Comerford, featured in a national newspaper in June praising the virtues of taking out an Advanced Learning Loan for the course, which enabled her to study towards a midwifery degree. Follow her story and others here in The Guardian Newspaper.

Learner, Emma Shuker joined The City of Liverpool College on a Level 1 Health and Social Care course – after her school told her not to go to college because she wouldn’t succeed. Emma worked hard and utilised all the support her tutors gave her as she continued to progress to Level 2 and then Level 3. This year her tutors are proud to see Emma graduate from Edge Hill University with a BA in Health Studies, and wish her all the best in her career.
