Health Social and Child Studies Level 5 and 6

Health Social and Child Studies

I am a 24-year-old father of one and currently about to enter my 3rd year of studying at Lews Castle College UHI.

I came to college at the age of 22 having left school with no qualifications. I started the Health Social and Child Studies Level 5 course. This gave me a very secure grounding to progress to the Health Social and Child Studies Level 6 course. This course allowed me to extend my knowledge while tutors guided me through my education encouraging research of material relating to the fields we studied.

I would recommend doing these courses to anyone wanting a job in any field of social care. I am currently about to start an HNC in Childhood Practice in September and I have no doubt that I would have been unable to do this without the expert teaching and guidance of my tutors.

In the future, I intend doing a degree in social work and eventually become a child and youth care worker within residential units.
