Health & Care pathway

The Academy Grimsby is delighted to offer qualifications in healthcare, with support from various Healthcare Providers.

Students are given a strong set of core skills to support the journey to become a healthcare professional. This specialist work-related qualification is designed to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for entering college or direct employment in the health and social care sector. To be successful on the health & care course, it is important to be able to use good communication skills with a wide range of people to solve problems, meet deadlines and work effectively as part of a team. This qualification prepares students to understand the roles and responsibilities of a person working in the healthcare sector. This includes studying both the rights and the needs of people within health and social care settings and how a health and social care professional can improve the lives of others.

Students will have the chance to practise some of the basics of healthcare including the impact of diet and lifestyles on health. Learners will also undertake the study of a childcare qualification which will develop their knowledge and understanding of child development and well-being necessary for working with children in a variety of settings. It is aimed to introduce learners to the knowledge, skills and understanding required for childcare and the development of children aged 0-5 years. The qualification will develop knowledge relating to roles and responsibilities in settings, stages of child development, observing children and their holistic development. This will give learners an ideal insight allowing them to determine whether a career in childcare and education and/or health and social care is right for them.
