    So I’m currently planning on going to my local college to do the level 3 extended BTEC health and social care course and I’m wondering what careers I can go into without going to university? (I also get hundreds of hours placements, so I’ll have loads of work experience)

    Thankyou I did look into a lot of these but nearly all of them require university right? Im looking for a job in health and social care I can do without a degree that I’d do for a couple years before heading off for a degree to cover some of the Tuition fees

    you can be a Healthcare Assistant or a Nursing Associate, or a care support worker (there are a lot of similar roles that involve caring for people with various healthcare needs in hospitals, at home and in nursing homes). You can get a training role as a HCA just with level 2 English and Maths qualifications, so you could apply for these jobs without having a BTEC. Having experience in a caring role already will help you.
