What do I need to get on this course?

For your own part, you have to be certain that becoming a professional care giver is what you want to do. Most people who do the evening course, work during the day and are more likely to have families to take care of. You must be able to commit yourself to this course of study in a mature and efficient way so that your paid employment and family commitments are not compromised because of your study schedule. Hence, you have to organise your time efficiently, be highly motivated, astute and be able to invest at least 20 hours a week of self study.
You are expected to be working at level 2 and this is equivalent to having a GCSE grade C. To demonstrate your competency in Maths and English, all applicants will be asked to complete the college’s initial assessment. The assessment will cover comprehension in English, basic Math including fractions, percentages, ratio and simple drug calculations and you will also be asked to write an essay.

As the evening course is highly intensive, your Maths and English have to be very good in order for you to cope with the fast pace of this course. A selection interview will follow if you are working at level 2 or above. The interview will explore your interest in and aptitude for nursing or midwifery and other related topical issues.

*You can practice your Maths and English on the BBC GCSE bite size website and research the various nursing options in preparation for interview on the NHS Careers Website.
