What Our Students Say

The tutors are really helpful, most of them have actually worked as an actual like social worker or care worker, so that’s good because they can give you on-hand experience and they can tell you things they have actually experienced whilst they’ve worked, and it can help you kind of learn about health and social care because you’re learning from people who have experienced it.
