Progressive College Healthcare Courses

Delivering Healthcare Courses for over 30 years

Our Healthcare Courses are nationally accredited HIQA recommended QQI major and minor award programmes. They are specifically for learners wishing to train as Healthcare Assistants, for those wishing to progress into Nursing Degree programmes or for learners who wish to work in the Healthcare Sector. 

Learners acquire a thorough understanding of the role of the Healthcare Assistant and are provided with in-depth training in the necessary skills required to work in this field.  This programme fosters awareness of current and emerging legislation in the healthcare sector and encourages learners to take responsibility for their own professional development particularly in identifying their own professional development needs. This programme also affords learners the opportunity to reflect critically on personal and professional practice.  The Healthcare Support/Nursing Studies award facilitates the learners’ understanding of the needs of their clients in relation to the preservation of their independence, respect, dignity, choice and self-esteem.  Once qualified, rewarding career opportunities will be open to successful graduates, in the expanding healthcare sector, including positions in nursing homes, hospitals, day care centres or in private home care.
