Jayne has been studying for a Level 3 Healthcare Support Diploma – a subject which is close to her heart

“I have been caring for a close relative in recent years and realised I enjoy caring for others. I decided to enrol on this course as I wanted to build on the knowledge I already have and consolidate it into a professional qualification....

The course has been interesting, and I have a much greater understanding of the role and responsibilities of working in a care setting.

It has given me confidence in my ability to care for others and I have developed new ways of learning.

I am going to apply for a Nursing Assistant role within the NHS and will look to continue with my studies.

If anybody is thinking of career in the Care Sector, I would recommend this course as it gives you a great platform and recognised skills to apply for jobs with confidence.

I am so pleased that I took the leap and enrolled on this course. The tutors have been supportive and put you at ease, and I have made new friends along the way”.
