The Access to Healthcare Practitioners (HCP) pathway is an intensive course for those aged 19 and over, especially for people who are returning to education. It is specifically geared towards a graduate career, and prepares students to study at university level towards future employment in a range of healthcare-related careers. The course aims to help students acquire the skills and knowledge needed to apply for various health / social care degrees, such as Adult Nursing, Paediatric Nursing, Mental Health Nursing, Midwifery, Paramedic Science or Health and Social Care. Completion of the Access to HCP course allows students to gain direct entry to their chosen degree; successful students are able to gain places at UK-wide universities as well as with local providers the University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University.
You will need Mathematics and English GCSE (minimum grade C or equivalent) or, if applying for Midwifery, a minimum of 5 GCSE's (minimum grade C or equivalent) prior to enrolling on the programme. You will also be required to complete a diagnostic test.
Assessment is a combination of written assessments and assignments.
