In your first year you’ll learn the fundamental skills for mental healthcare, while also learning to lead and manage yourself. In your second year you’ll consider leading and managing care. In the third year you’ll consider leading and managing service – learning how to develop your abilities to lead a team and drive service innovation.
It’s planned that on-campus teaching for this course will start at Oxstalls in September 2024, then transfer to the new City Campus in Gloucester in the 2024-25 academic year. This provides time to ensure a smooth transition and familiarisation with the new facilities for all.
The vibrant new City Campus will be at the heart of the regeneration of Gloucester city centre. It will bring an iconic building back to life as a modern centre for teaching, learning and community partnerships and provide an excellent student experience.
