Working in the Health Care industry can be hugely rewarding. If you're passionate about helping people and are looking for a role in a rapidly-growing industry, studying with Glasgow Clyde College could set you on the correct path.
What experience do I need?
You don't necessarily need any experience to study Health Care. Our First Steps to Care - Level 4 (January) course is ideal if you want to get into health care, but have no previous experience, and can set you up for further study in this area.
