If you want to help people live healthy, happy lives and your dream job involves taking care of others as a care professional, there are a wide variety of opportunities in the health and wellbeing sectors for you. Whether you want to nurse people back to good physical health or focus on mental health and wellbeing, our flexible healthcare courses will support your professional development and enable you to take the next step towards a rewarding career as a health care professional. 

With a high demand for well-trained and dedicated staff, a shift in focus to preventative care on the horizon and a growing admiration for mental health and wellbeing professionals, there has never been a more exciting time to study a health and social care course and prepare for a career in these sectors.

What’s more, if you have been inspired to follow in the footsteps of our NHS heroes, you’ll be one of the first students of our courses in healthcare to benefit from our new, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, including a mock hospital ward with infectious disease area, at our redeveloped Openshaw Campus.

We’re committed to providing all our students with a career-focused learning experience and as a student of our School of Sport, Health and Wellbeing you’ll learn in industry-standard, state-of-the-art facilities at our Openshaw Campus, which will provide the perfect environment for you to excel.

Our goal is to help you to secure employment or that much sought-after promotion. That's why our courses are designed to help you learn skills that you can apply in your placements or current role to make an impact immediately.
