Social Care
The Department of Humanities provides part-time programmes of study in Social Care Practice.Students are provided with specialist training and education utilising the latest technologies and teaching methodologies. Lecturing staff within the department are actively engaged in many research fields while other academics are engaged in research and consultancy with industry, which ensures that each programme offered is academically and practically focused. This benefits the student as each course of study fosters creative, critical, competitive and practical competencies.

The Priory Institute offers accredited certificates, higher certificates, diplomas and degrees. Programme accreditation has to do with quality assurance. It is a process under which educational programmes are evaluated by a government authorised, external body to determine if all applicable standards are met. Only those programmes become accredited that meet these quality assurance standards.
