UWS is leading the way in supporting the evolving integrated health and social care sector with recent graduates already reaping the benefits in their career progression.
A passion for helping young people find their own voice saw David Brady quit his Business
Analyst job to return to full-time education to study UWS’s BA Integrated Health and Social Care programme at the University’s Paisley Campus.
David, 38, had spent many years working in banking IT before a volunteer role working with young disabled footballers made him re-evaluate his career and life goals.
He says: “I’d gone straight from school into the bank, without really thinking about it. Volunteering with local disabled children changed my outlook, and, eventually, my life.”
From the football club, David started volunteering with a local ADHD support group, before deciding that he wanted to study for a recognised Health and Social Care qualification.
After starting on an HNC course, it was a visit from UWS lecturers that spurred David on to study for the BA Integrated Health and Social Care Honours degree.
