Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health & Social Care
Previous school: The Priory School

I’m the regional district cadet of the year for St John Ambulance and what that means is that I have quite a lot of clinical experience, as well as a lot of skills that I’ve acquired through just talking to people. When my tutor found out about my volunteering, she encouraged me to enter the WorldSkills Show to show my transferrable skills and work on my personal development.

Previous school: St Dominic’s School

I have completed two placements at Shortwood Primary School as part of my studies. This has helped me to decide on my future aim of becoming a Primary School Teacher. I enjoy Health & Social Care as it helps me balance out my workload.

Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health & Social Care
Previous school: William Brookes School

When I was younger I spent a lot of time in hospital and the wonderful staff inspired me to pursue a career as a midwife. The teachers always answer your queries and help you manage your time. Last year I got a distinction for Level 2 and was eager to come back this year. The partnership between SCG and the NHS offers an amazing opportunity. I have started as a Health Care Assistant at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
