Studying a Health and Social Care programme at North Hertfordshire College can lead to a range of career paths in the Health Sector. Callum Foxley who recently completed his Level 3 Health and Social Care programme has joined the East of England Ambulance Service as an Apprentice Emergency Medical Technician. Callum has found the course invaluable to get him to this exciting first stage of his career.

“I chose to study at North Hertfordshire College because I wanted to study a course that would allow me to have a deeper understanding of the health and social care sector and I knew that this course would equip me with a lot of skills that could be transferred into my career.

“I really enjoyed learning about areas that could be specially transferred to my career in the ambulance service, such as anatomy and physiology and understanding and explaining medical conditions. The independent study on the course allowed me to complete assignments and carry out my own research into a specific area of the health and social care sector.

“All of the staff at the college are really supportive and are always happy to help you with any work. The college also has a really good pastoral support service, so there is support with the academic side of the course, but you are also supported emotionally.

“This course has equipped me with the relevant knowledge and skills needed to work in the health and social care sector. Skills such as respect, dignity, empathy, good communications skills and treating service users with a person-centred approach have been central to my learning on the course.

“I am excited to start the next stage of my career, and thankful to the college for their support throughout my studies.”

Anna Copper, Health and Social Care tutor, said:

“We are delighted with Callum’s achievement and very proud of the work he has done throughout the pandemic to support the community and the ambulance service, which shows his commitment to and passion for providing medical care.”
