Matt’s Story

Matt has aspirations of becoming a Paramedic or an ODP and has completed a T Level in Health to help him on his way.

"My favourite part has been the placement. I worked on a ward helping patients who were medically fit but couldn’t go home without a care plan."

Former school: Penair School

What’s next: An Apprenticeship in Paramedicine to become a Paramedic or an ODP.

My story:

Matt chose the College based on its reputation and its offering of T Levels and has benefitted greatly from the work placement that was a large part of his course.

Matt said: “My favourite part has been the placement. I worked on a ward helping patients who were medically fit but couldn’t go home without a care plan.

“I wanted to come to the College because of its reputation and the fact that it offered T Level Health.

“We have libraries we can use to do work in our own time and the lecturers have helped me with revision tips and how to maximise my score on tests, which is really helpful.

“I want to do an Apprenticeship in Paramedicine as I would like to be a Paramedic or an ODP.

“My advice to future students is make sure you fully research the course you’re going to do before you do it, so you are prepared for the content that’s going to be involved. Also, revise as you go rather than leaving it until the end.”
