Health Skills Show

21 students recently attended the Liverpool Health Skills Show facilitated by All About STEM at the Titanic Hotel.

Students visited trade stands to learn about NHS and healthcare based careers as many of our students are thinking about careers in midwifery, nursing, speech & language therapy, veterinary science, psychiatry and pediatrics.

Activities at the stands included taking dental impressions, performing first aid, sorting out drugs, guessing what chocolate bar it is based on microscope images. dressing up as forensic examiners, having their blood pressure and oxygen saturation tested, getting their eye examined and having a VR simulation of autism.

They also received a talk about some lesser known health care professions that they might be interested.

All of the students gained a greater insight into their potential career choices, and it was an invaluable experience for all.
