Professionals from the health industry have attended Hartlepool Sixth Form College to speak with students and answer questions in relation to their job roles.

Health and Social Care students were given the chance to speak to professionals working professionally in the industry, including a paediatric nurse, general nurse, social worker, health care assistant and specialist sexual health nurse. The event gave students the chance to expand their knowledge of the industry and enabled them to take their new understanding back into the classroom.

The opportunity to learn about different roles within health and social care settings meant that students could use the information gained to aid with for forthcoming exams and university applications and pathways.

“This event was very successful. Our first year students found it very beneficial and could put their theoretical knowledge learned to use when having discussions with the professionals. The second year students found the event useful as they were able to ask questions about real life experiences and what job roles entail on a day to day basis. We were very thankful to the professionals as they had attended this event in their free time to aid in our students learning.”
