This programme has been designed to help students understand how the theoretical concepts they learned at level 4 and 5, can be applied to create wellbeing, support and equality interventions in practice.

Develop students’ ability to apply social science and counselling theories to explain and address personal and social issues.

Enable students to develop as active and critically conscious life-long learners, with a sound understanding of the relationship between theoretical frameworks and empirical methods of enquiry, which inform the development, interpretation and continuing re-evaluation of theory and professional practice
"I will really miss my college days and from the beginning the tutor, Al, has been so supportive. From someone who has not completed anything academic in over 20 years, this course was a step in the right direction for me. I have learnt so much from the group of people, different organisations, but mostly from Al who has a wealth of HR knowledge. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Al and she will always go out of her way to support and guide you in the right direction".
