Health and Social Care CACHE Level 3

I first visited UCB at an open day and the atmosphere just felt completely different from the start. Staff were really open and friendly and made it clear they would support me from the very start. I did four placements during my time at college in businesses across the health and social care sector and I’d say they were the highlight of the whole course. My final placement, at a residential care home, led to me being offered a permanent position there as a care assistant, which is what I do now. I loved getting the opportunity to put everything I was learning in the classroom straight into action – and I think having that specialised knowledge is also what got me the job.

If I could offer any student thinking of taking this course one piece of advice it would be to dive straight in and start learning as soon as you arrive. Everything you are taught here comes in handy later on – so make sure you take it all in!
