Available courses

Healthcare at Nescot

We have a growing and exciting range of courses that can help you to develop a business or new skills for interest. We understand that you will already have a busy and complicated life so we try to offer course times that fit around work and families. At Nescot we keep our group sizes as small as possible and this enables us to provide you with more individual support. You can, of course, also expect state-of-the-art resources to support your learning.

Most of our distance learning courses are free if you meet the eligibility criteria (click here for details) and if you complete the course (click here for details of our terms and conditions).

You’re training to work in a non-clinical role, using play to support children who are unwell. The qualification is exactly like the job: challenging and demanding, but incredibly rewarding. You’re taught by two tutors who have amazing experience in very different areas, which helps you develop a balanced perspective. I’m proud to say that I now work at a prestigious children’s hospital.
