Our course - developed in conjunction with Yorkshire's leading health care organisations - gives you valuable skills that directly relate to both the changes in your workplace and in your role. It will provide you with the expertise needed to deliver quality care provision.
There's a mix of academic study and practice-based learning, and you'll be studying alongside people from all kinds of backgrounds and roles, meaning you'll benefit from shared experience and knowledge. You'll attend our University for taught classes, and then return to your workplace to practice and develop the skills you've learnt.
You'll also have the opportunity to see other clinical environments and approaches to care in areas such as nutritional health, maternity support and mental health. All of this will contribute to your own e-portfolio of personal and workplace development.
