If 2020 and 2021 have taught us anything, it’s just how important the health and social care sector is to the whole of the UK. And it’s a sector that’s growing rapidly – the UK will need tens of thousands more dedicated professionals in the future.
Do you want to look back on this year and know that you did more than just clap for carers? Enroling on a Health and Social Care course can take you one step closer to becoming a key worker yourself. There are few other careers where you can make such a huge difference to someone’s life.
By the time you complete your studies at The Manchester College - the No.1 College in Greater Manchester for achievement*, you’ll have gained the skills, knowledge and experience to apply for a job in the sector, or to progress to higher education.
Whichever path you take, you’ll be choosing an incredibly rewarding career where you’ll make a difference to people in your community every single day.
From 2022, Health and Social Care will be offered at our Openshaw (Level 1 - Level 3 courses), Harpurhey (Level 1 courses) and Wythenshawe (Level 1 courses) campuses. Find out more about our new facilities at Openshaw.

Top Careers Opportunities
Darcy Birch • Level 3 Health and Social Care
The campus is well located for me, which means I can travel to college with ease every day. My tutors have always given me great advice throughout my course. I have gained a lot of knowledge on potential career paths, which I would not have been able to do without their help.
Josh Peak • Level 3 Health and Social Care
The College has guided me towards the steps I need to take in order to reach my goals. My tutors have helped me to find a work placement within the industry, which has been really useful as I have been able to experience what the working world is like. I would love to work within mental health as this is such a big issue for young people and adults these days. I am going to go to university to study this further then progress into employment.
