Spotlight on Health and Social Care

Have you thought about caring for others as a career?

If you enjoy:

  • Meeting and helping people
  • Using practical skills
  • Discovering what makes people healthy

Then a career in Health and Social Care might be a good choice for you – and there’s still time to apply for a course starting in 2017.

Health Care involves jobs where medical treatment is prominent, such as becoming a doctor, nurse, dentist or support staff, whereas Social Care can involve working with people of all ages when they need help. This could be for a short amount of time or for many years.

Studying Health and Social Care at Farnborough College of Technology involves:

  • The Frimley Park Nursing Cadet Scheme: Level 3 students have access to apply
  • Purpose-built classrooms that link to the workplace
  • Lecturers who bring lessons to life with their own experiences of work
  • Placements in local health and social care settings
  • The potential to progress right through to degree-level courses

We offer Health and Social Care at three levels. Students with five GCSEs at A*-C can join our Level 3 course, however our Level 2 and Level 1 courses may be a better choice if you need to work up to a higher level because of lower GCSE grades.


Did you know there are 89,600 Health and Care jobs in our region? For a full list of careers in Health and Care, read the NHS’s leaflet online and start thinking about which jobs you could imagine yourself doing in a few years. Your training could start this September, as you can still apply for a course with us even if you’ve already applied for another college or course. 

 What now?

You can make an application online, email us at info@farn-ct.ac.uk or telephone 01252 407040 if you have any questions.
