Look after your future with a course in Social Care

As the population of the world ages, there are more and more people who are needed to help look after our elders. While the work is demanding, it can often also be very rewarding. It is a career that can work for almost anyone, at whatever level they wish to work at. There are practical openings for people that are looking for sociable yet practical work. There are administrative jobs for people who would like to progress with a career. For those that dream higher still, there are jobs in Social Care that operate at a high level and can help make a difference to the lives of literally millions of people.

What is Social Care?

Social care encompasses several different facets. While it often entails working with the elderly, social care professionals also work with families, vulnerable children and the wider community. It can also include working with special needs patients and vulnerable adults.

It is often challenging work, that is not suited to everyone. However, for those that enjoy it, the work is highly rewarding and offers a rare chance to make a genuine difference to the everyday lives of patients.

At a higher level, Social Care can involve setting policy and rules for the care of patients. With the potential to take professionals to a very high level, including working in government, there is a chance to make a difference to people on a city-wide level, as well as a personal one.

What will I learn on a course?

Students will learn all the essential components of social care work. These include:

  • A strong understanding of the systems and regulations that govern the social care industry and how to work within the guidelines to deliver the highest quality care.
  • A grounding in the roles of the professional, and how they work to support the community
  • Investigation methods to determine the best course of care for individual patients, using data and analysis to do so.
  • Learn how to use data to solve problems that may arise in a social care setting and help patients who have genuine problems.
  • Work to record personal information in a sensitive, objective and accurate manner.
    o This also includes the legalities surrounding medication and care of vulnerable adults
  • Learning to work with patients in a professional manner.
  • Personal reflection to help you with your skills and knowledge base, in order to allow personal progression as a care worker.
    o It will also help with personal satisfaction and to guide you in your own emotional and physical health as a result of your work.
  • Understand the commitments that are made as a healthcare professional, including ethics.

What can I expect to do after I finish?

Graduates of the course can expect to be qualified to begin work in the social care industry. Whether this is at an entry-level, as a carer or, if the circumstances are right, as a supervisor, students will be trained to carry out their work effectively.

With an aging global population, there are always job openings available, so if you are simply looking for a job that will prove to be reliable, a course in social care is an ideal choice. If you have taken a Social Care qualification at a higher level, then there are
openings at higher levels available, both as a supervisor to teams of carers and for people looking to be able to shape policy in a field that makes an enormous difference to everyone involved.
