The Convenient Way to Study a Social Care Course

Join over 60,000 people who improved their skills with us. Study from home at your own pace

A social carer helps people live more successfully within their local communities by helping them find solutions to their problems. You can learn about this profession with our social care with families course.

Our course is independently accredited by NCFE IIQ. Over 300,000 people have furthered their education with an NCFE award.

What is social care?

Social care helps people and their families and friends as well as working closely with other organisations including the police, local authority departments, schools and the probation service.

It can involve work for a range of organisations - primarily in local authorities, independent organisations and charities, and the NHS.

Trusted qualifications

All of our courses are independently accredited from long-established awarding organisations with qualifications such as BTEC, NVQ, and A-Level. It's easier to get a job when you have an employer recognised qualification.

Study from home, at your own pace

If you struggle to find time to study every day at a traditional college, a home learning course is an ideal solution. Over 60,000 people have studied with us from home and enjoyed full support from a tutor.

You'll study whenever you want, at your own pace. There are no strict deadlines (you'll have up to a year and most of our courses require 80 hours of study- that's around 1 hour and a half a week).

You could complete your course in 2 weeks or 12 months- it's up to you.

Award-winning tutor support

Our courses are studied entirely from home- but you still enjoy help at every step of the way from your dedicated expert tutor who can be contacted via our award-winning e-learning site.
