What work will I do in Individual Support?
What do other students think about Individual Support?
Completing this course has helped me understand what is needed when I work in the care industry. This course is more ‘real to life’ than just working from books. When I was doing my work experience I realised that the course helped me to apply my knowledge, because it was like what we were taught in class. The instructors work in the industry, and this helped me with my confidence because they knew what they were talking about. I am now planning to do my Diploma in Nursing instead of going to University as I can get a paid job much quicker.Ahmed, student
