Hello I'm choosing to do a extended diploma in health and social care but was wondering what can I do when I finish this course, I hope to teach health and social care at a secondary school, I was wondering will this be the right course to pursue my dream?

I studied this course and there are so many jobs you can go onto such as nursing, social work, radiography, occupational therapy and so on. I don't see why you couldn't go into teaching. I think you'd need to do that teacher training course although I don't know much about that

There is a variety of pathways you can enter once you finish this course. I have just finished my health and social care studies and I am off to university to study child nursing. The list goes on and on. You can even get a job straight afterwards e.g. in a care home, nursery or an auxiliary nurse.

With teaching, I'm sure you have to undergo a teaching course.

Many thanks,

That's where I got confused at as well. I think the teacher training course is called a PGCE which you need to have a degree before you can go onto the course. My guess would be to study health and social care at uni and then go the PGCE which is about a year I think. Although I know some of my health teachers one studied criminology the other psychology. So I think it varies.
Have a look at this link. I think it may help answer your questions.
