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 6-month programme with one session per month 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 6-month programme you will be asked to come together in small groups to present what you have learnt, your highlights and experiences in a fun and creative way at an awards ceremony (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.
Applications for the Senior Academy are now closed. Keep checking back for future dates which will be released soon.
