ACCESS to Health Professions Course
Do you want to be a nurse, midwife or work within the health profession? Then this course could be for you.
The access course is a year-long course, studying 3 days a week.The course is taught with a mixture of classes and self-directed study. There are a variety of assignment styles, some essay based and some practical.
It is a portfolio-built course, so no exams! When you’ve completed each unit, you are awarded either a pass, merit or distinction grade, which you earn UCAS points.
The course progresses you into careers including; nursing, midwifery, paramedics, physiography and occupational health.
Janet Hampson, a tutor on the course says: “Our learners have proved to be very successful. Last year all learners who applied to university got their place. We have had learner go into midwifery, which can be very competitive. We have got our first midwife this year, who has finished university and got her first job.”
Janet added: “Learners have said that the course is good preparation for university, the course content that we deliver is relevant to what they go on to study. If you want to go into the health professions, we will support you and get to know you very well, and adapt to suit your needs.”
I recently received my Mental Health Level 2 certificates from ATTFE College. I was made redundant in September 2019 and because of the pandemic the role I was supposed to start was pulled. I decided to retrain as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. In February 2020 I completed the Mental Health First Aid certificate and it highlighted that I needed to increase my awareness about Mental Health for my ability to help my clients. I found the Level 2 course with ATTFE and completed it online during the pandemic
Wendy my assessor was amazing and so patient with me. Instead of continuing onto the Level 3 course I decided to look at the Level 2 Counselling course which I am halfway through completing. Both of these courses are allowing me to expand my knowledge and compliment the skills I have already to be able to help and support many more clients.
Working and studying with ATTFE College has been great and allowed me to access courses that I didn’t think I would have been able to complete during the pandemic. I love learning and will be looking for the next level in Counselling to start as an evening course hopefully in September.
