An awards event was held in Scholars Restaurant, North Shropshire College to celebrate the successful completion of the January intake of Access to HE (Health) students. The group has had a very successful year with all students expecting to progress to their chosen Degree course in Nursing, Social Work and Midwifery.

Students have completed modules in Health Studies, Psychology, Sociology and Biology. Lianne Manuel, a completing student said that the course had given her a real insight into study after a long break from education. ‘I have made many friends and have gained a lot of self-belief’.

Jill Cawthray, the Access Coordinator commented, ‘I am very proud to be a part of our highly successful Access to HE Course. For mature students it really does open doors to many rewarding careers and Higher Education courses.’

There are still a few places for the new intake of Access to HE (Health) which starts in January 2017. Alternatively there are courses in Health, Science and Social Sciences with Humanities starting in September 2017.
