School of Health & Social Care
Health and Social Care is one of the major public service areas
in the UK and is also growing very significantly in countries across the world.
In the UK, the government funded National Health Service is the largest single
employer, and there has also been a significant growth in private provision of
services including Care and Nursing Homes.
The combination of an ageing population, increased number of people without a strong family support network, (that often supplements or replaces social care services in many overseas countries), and advancements in medical treatments, is leading to an increased reliance on public and private sector health and social care services. Improvements in available treatment methods and support services are creating significant demands for services, but these can come at significant cost. Juggling increasing demands against limited resources mean that professional management is necessary to make important decisions on the effective use of these resources. Demand is therefore increasing for qualified professionals in this sector who have a combination of healthcare and management skills.
The Healthcare Management courses we offer at EThames are intended to create health professionals and managers with a thorough understanding of managing health and social care services. We offer a full range of courses from programs suitable for those student who already work, or hope to work in health and social care but who do not possess a formal qualification to practitioners who see their future career in a management related role in this sector. Programmes also have assessed practical work related units, which means that students have an opportunity to complete some work experience in a health or care related setting.
As with all courses at EThames Graduate School, students in the School of Health and Social Care are required to attend a compulsory Course Essentials unit. This unit will provide the key study skills and support necessary for the successful completion of the programme; of particular importance are the development of critical analysis and Harvard referencing skills, both covered fully within this module. This unit is particularly helpful for students new to UK University Level Studies, which often require a significant adjustment to the style of learning on the part of the student.
