Social Enterprise in Health and Social Care

In health and social care, the use of social enterprises started to gain momentum, with active encouragement taking hold during the past decade. Social enterprise remains a good source of health and social care provision. The organisation and delivery of health and social care services is undergoing significant change, with new partnerships, new ways of working, and the development of new practitioner roles. The course aims to provide students with the appropriate knowledge, understanding, skills, and values required for them to work, research or continue their studies in health, social care and allied professions; respond to change and development in health and social care policy, practice, and theory; provide a range of educational experiences, through flexible learning routes and suitable work-based experiences, for a diverse student population; and enable students to learn how to become reflective practitioners and promote learning throughout their careers.
