Students win East of England finals in national NHS Competition
NHS staff Elaine Turner (Health Careers Representative), and Natasha Green (Paramedic), attended the Year 9 assembly on Wednesday 15th May to present Year 9S students Jake, Rikhil and Dexter with certificates in recognition of them being named Regional Winners in the East of England ‘Step into the NHS Schools’ 2019 Competition.
The competition is part of the Step into the NHS campaign, run by Health Careers, and is open to 12 to 14 year olds. The competition aims to get students thinking creatively about health service careers and their future work prospects. Over 3600 students from across the country took part in the competition with students having to select one of the 350 careers in health, and work creatively to produce a job advertisement and a job description of the ideal candidate.
All of our Year 9 students produced electronic entries during their careers modules in Personal Development as well as during one IT lesson. The winning team chose the job role of a paramedic and produced a video advert.
