Health Care Cadet Programmes

Here at JLC we have a unique programme of study for students who are very focussed on a career within the Health or Social Care sector.

Our Health Care Cadet Programme combines a Health & Social Care qualification with a relevant placement to give you loads of experience and a great chance of going onto the next stage of education or gaining employment in the area of your choice. 

Details of what we can offer are below. Please be aware that places on the Cadet Programme are limited and therefore early application is strongly advised. Click here to apply now.

Successful applicants will also be required to pay for a DBS check and uniform, which are both essential to the course. 

 

Advanced Cadets

Our Level 3 Advanced Cadet Programme is aimed at school leavers or students who will have recently completed Level 2/GCSE qualifications. 

Through this programme you will gain a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care, equivalent to 3 A Levels, which will enable you to progress onto the Higher Cadet Programme, university or employment and with the amount of experience and clinical skills that you will develop you stand a good chance of beating the competition.  

The course takes 2 years to complete and consists of 3 days per week at college alongside 2 days per week on  a clinical skills placement. This placement could be within the NHS at Scunthorpe, Grimsby or Goole hospitals, or within a social care setting. Shift work may be expected as part of the placement, however this will not include night shifts. 

This programme is suitable for students looking to progress into careers such as Nursing, Midwifery, HealthCare Assistant roles, Paramedic response and other related professions. 

Entry requirements for this course are 5 GCSEs at grade C or above including Maths (grade 4), English (grade 4) and Science. You should also have a strong interest in the Health and Social Care sectors, and possibly work experience or voluntary work within this area. 

Successful applicants will have to complete an assessment day at the college, where your suitability for the course will be checked. This is to ensure your commitment to the course, and to make sure you have the skills or potential to achieve what is possible from the programme. 

 

Higher Cadets

Our Level 4/5 Higher Cadet Programme is aimed at college/6th form leavers, Healthcare Assistants or similar practitioners, or those who have completed a relevant Access to HE course.
