Health & Social Care

Health, Social Care, Nursing & Dental

Demand for Health, Social Care, Nursing and Dental workers is growing, so this is a great time to start your career in these professions.

If you enjoy working with people and like the idea of making life that bit easier for others, these are the courses for you.

Our aim is to ensure you are ready to enter employment when you leave Hugh Baird College and, as part of your course, you will undertake a work placement. This time out in industry is very important and allows you to gain knowledge and develop a wide range of skills working within a setting relevant to your chosen career pathway. Many of our learners go on to secure full time employment as a result of their placement.

Our study programmes are taught by lecturers with industry experience and provide you with a broad underpinning knowledge of all aspects of health provision.
