This one-year course prepares participants for work with people in a social care, community development or residential setting. The care worker needs social, communication and caring skills to work with individuals and groups. Many of the skills acquired will be transferable for use with adolescents, families and the elderly in a caring, educational or development role. The Applied Social Studies QQI course will lay a foundation for these skills and provide the work experience to put learning into practice. This course will serve as training for social care/community care/ healthcare sectors or as a link to Applied Social Studies/ Social Care or Nursing certificate or degree courses in many Institutes of Technology throughout the country.
