Working closely with NHS Trusts, local authorities and private businesses across the adult social care and healthcare industries, we have built our reputation for high quality education and training that makes a difference.
Programmes delivered at the Twelve Quays Campus include:
|CPCAB Understanding Substance Misuse Level 2 Award||Level 2||J185|
|Introduction to Mental Health (Level 2)||Level 2||J201|
These courses equip students with the skills and knowledge to progress onto occupations including:
Starting salaries for Care Assistants can be between £12,000 and £16,000 per year. With experience, qualifications and extra responsibilities or specialist support worker skills, Care Assistants may earn between £18,000 and £21,000 per year. Mental health nurses can earn from £21,000 to £27,000 per year, and experienced nurses working as clinical specialists or nurse team managers can earn from £25,000 to £40,000 per year. (Source)
Many students progress onto jobs once they have completed their full-time study programmes, and other Level 3 students progress onto Higher Education to study towards a degree, such as the BSc (Hons) Psychology at Wirral Met College, which is validated by the University of Liverpool.
Where are they now?

Katie said, "Wirral Met has prepared me for university life by giving me the skills and confidence to start my nursing journey."
