The Senior Academy is an opportunity to learn about the NHS and social care and the roles it has to offer. We offer the chance to not only meet a range of healthcare professionals, to gain a better understanding of what their role entails and possible routes into the varying careers. This programme will run as a three month online learning programme with one session per week meaning you will continue your college studies.
During the interactive and engaging sessions you will cover areas such as;
- Communication skills
- Infection control
- First aid
- Patient care i.e. Observations
- Interview skills
- Routes into Health and Social Care i.e. University, Apprenticeships etc
The academy experience also aims to provide individuals with life skills such as;
- Time management
- Enhanced self-awareness
At the end of the three month programme you will be asked to come to a virtual live session to present what you have learnt, your highlights and experiences in a fun and creative way (please note that only virtual opportunities are currently available due to Covid-19.).
To attend the Senior Academy you should be aged between 16-18 years.
If you are not 16 years of age you may want to consider the Junior Academy.
