    I was wondering if someone that has already done the health and social foundation certificate would be able to tell me what sort of places you can go to on placement I'm particularly interested in working with children as I would like to do children's nursing next year. Also what are we expected to wear on the teaching days is it casual like jeans or more of a business dress?

    Hey soph
    I did that exact course and they can't get you clinical placements but you might be able to get either a nursery or something with disabled children
    Wear whatever you like to uni most of the time everyone's in jeans
