The centre is situated next to our Loxton Campus, and close to Weston General Hospital which allows students to work closely with industry professionals and gain valuable knowledge. As well as benefiting from the state-of-the-art facilities, students are taught by staff who are experienced professionals with experience working in a range of roles in the sector. This has helped us to develop industry-relevant courses to help you gain employment in the Health and Social Care or progress onto a university-level qualification.
