Tammy Rowles

"Completing the Level 1 qualification gave me a lot of confidence in my abilities and am now certain that I want to work in this field. On the course, we explored many different job roles in care and what qualifications are required for different roles.

When I complete my Level 2, I aim to have decided which profession I’d like to pursue, although I’m already leaning towards becoming a health care assistant. I’m extremely grateful to have been given a chance to study and gain qualifications this late in life."


Working in social care is about providing personal and practical support to help people live their lives. There are lots of different roles in social care depending on what you want to do, who you want to work with and where you would like to work. This session will cover different activities to help you decide if a career in care is for you.


There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).

Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
