Course overview:

Arden University’s CertHE Health and Care Management will give you a robust introduction to health and social care and the essential skills you need to get your career started in the sector.

Regularly updated to address the health and social care sector’s evolving needs, this course will provide you with a solid foundation for future study or work in the field. The CertHE is a recognised qualification in its own right and provides an entry route to degree-level study. This is a great option if you feel ready to study a degree course but don’t have the necessary qualifications usually required, such as GCSEs or A levels.

The CertHE Health and Care Management is the ideal choice for newcomers wanting to enter the field, current professionals looking to transition into their first management role, as well as developing managers seeking to build on their skills.

Course Eligibility

CertHE Heath and Care Management

We welcome anyone onto our CertHE course who can show us their determination to complete the qualification. You’ll just need to complete our one-week Introduction to Higher Education which mirrors the timetabled hours of your programme. Once you’ve passed this, you’ll be able to start on your CertHE.

English proficiency

  • IELTS 6.0 (no less than 5.5 in any element); or equivalent
  • If English is not your first language we’ll provide one and a half additional hours of subject-specific academic English support each week.
  • Alternatively evidence that you have previously studied in English at the appropriate level can be accepted.

We’ll give you all the support you need to succeed. Then, when you graduate from the CertHE course, you’ll be able to progress on to the rest of the degree course if you decide it’s right for you.

You will receive the same excellent support provided to all Arden students including success coaches, academic skills tutors and workshops, our careers team, and much more. You will also receive an additional four hours of online academic knowledge and study skills sessions as part of your course.
