A Career in Care Could be Waiting for You

Did you know that there are currently over 2,000 jobs available in health and social care in Plymouth?

If you’ve ever thought about a career in care, this is a great time to work towards a FREE, nationally recognised qualification that will build the knowledge you need to work in a care setting.

If you’re a compassionate person who combines a love of working with people with patience, empathy and a good sense of humour, a role in health and social care could be just right for you.

Our Level 2 qualifications are a great place to start.
Our online qualifications cover essential topics for anyone who is interested in working in care. You can study for a qualification in areas ranging from dignity and safeguarding, awareness of mental health problems, dementia care, working with learning disabilities or infection control.

You’ll study safely at home and if you’re already working or have childcare or other commitments, you can plan your learning to fit into your life. We’ll help you get started and we can even work with you to make sure your CV reflects your new skills, as well as your commitment to working in a health and social care role.

I managed to pass my GCSE, probably one of the oldest learners at age 64. Now I’m looking to get back into learning and hopefully take an A level in maths.”


Studying English Functional Skills, I now have an improved confidence and I can walk around with my head held high.


Helped me find the real me. I now have the confidence and the qualification to find myself a job. Thank you to my tutors who believed in me and pushed me to my limits it sure has paid off.


I have now passed both my functional skills courses and am currently studying for GCSE’s. I must admit it’s much better and I am way more confident.”


Everybody’s really welcoming, and nobody judges you, and you can be who you want to be. It’s just a great way to get going.


Just started the Introduction to Counselling Course & it is excellent!


Really enjoyed the Introduction to Training course. The trainer’s style was creative and engaging. Would recommend to anyone.


I recently attended two of the free workshops and I was amazed how much I learnt, the tutors were very passionate about the craft they were teaching and the fact we all got to bring items home that we made was so wonderful. I would recommend to anybody.


I’ve just received my results and have passed both my GCSE English & Maths. I left school in 1988. Getting the chance to redo them was a great opportunity for me. Such a good feeling to have passed, onwards and upwards for me.
