Our Summer School is for you if you are keen to experience work in health and care and achieve a City & Guilds qualification in end of life care at Level 2. This five day course could be the springboard to your future career.

- Are you aged 16-19 and interested in a career and maybe an Apprenticeship in health or adult care
- Do you enjoy blended learning with a mixture of practical and written activities
- Would you like to achieve a national qualification in end of life care which contributes to an Apprenticeship or your CV?
- How about having the opportunity to meet health and care professionals in a variety of roles so you can consider if any of these      professions are right for you?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then exploring a career in health and care with the Saint Francis Hospice Summer School may be just right for you. Over five days you will meet professionals working in the hospice, talk to patients and their relatives and receive training from our Education team of nurses and other qualified specialists.

What will I learn?

The week will include:

- an introduction to health and adult care including end of life care, its values, policies and principles
- the skills and attitudes needed to work in health and adult care
- the approaches to communication in health and adult care
- roles, responsibilities and future careers in the health and adult care sector
- team working, task management, personal effectiveness and employment skills.

What will I achieve? 

Successful completion of a workbook will give you the City & Guilds Level 2 Award in Awareness of End of Life Care (three credits). This is one unit that can be used to contribute to future study and an Apprenticeship or gain more knowledge. It would certainly add strength to your CV.
