Integrated Health and Social Care
BA (Hons) (Top-Up)
Leaflet Code: CR26772FTT
Designed in partnership with local health and social care providers, this BA (Hons) in Integrated Health and Social Care (Top-up) reflects the emerging devolution and integration agenda that is being spearheaded locally and nationally. Take this course and you can provide a more seamless, person-centred approach to service delivery, ensuring the best possible outcomes for users of services, their carers, and the population as a whole.
Enhance your knowledge and understanding of the key demographic drivers underpinning the sector. Explore local and national strategies designed to build resilient, sustainable communities and improve health and well-being. And build your awareness of the wider context of integrated care, the role and function of different agencies and professionals, and your own role within the sector.
As a vocationally driven programme, you’ll work and learn at the same time, equipping yourself with the knowledge and skills to become a more reflective, independent and critical member of the workforce, with a specific focus on gaining competencies required by practitioners working within integrated health and social care teams. Supporting national occupational standards and providing you with high level work-related skills, you’ll be well prepared for career progressions in the health and social care sector.
