Careers Competition Winners!
This is the second time that our Year 8 students have entered the annual ‘Step into the NHS’ competition as part of our integrated careers education programme.
Now in its ninth year, the competition attracted numerous entries from up and down the country and more than 2,000 students got involved. The competition aims to promote the 350 plus careers available in the health sector, and students were tasked with designing an advertisement and job description for their chosen role. They could work individually or in groups of up to four.
We are very proud to announce that Year 8 student, Charlotte Corrigan, won the North West Regional finals with her video promoting a career in Physiotherapy and the judges made a special note to say they were very impressed with the amount of research which had gone into Charlotte’s project. Congratulations also to Amelia Lowe who received a ‘Highly Commended’ certificate for her entry. Both girls were presented with their certificates in assembly where we welcomed Denise Ward from Health Education England and Adam Partington, a Rotational Neurological Physiotherapist for NHS.
More than 2,000 Year 8 and 9 pupils in schools all over England entered the competition this year, run by Health Education England, which makes the achievements of Charlotte and Amelia even more impressive.
We are very proud that our young students already have an excellent understanding of some of the careers opportunities available to them. They certainly have a bright future ahead!
