Mollie Breakwell and Jordan Priest (Health & Social Care)

Two Kidderminster College health and social care learners, Mollie Breakwell and Jordan Priest both won places to continue their studies at university after achieving their care qualifications.

Gaynor Edgar, lecturer in health and social care, said: “Many people are under the misconception that you need A-levels to go to university but these two learners are proof that vocational studies can also lead to a degree.”

“In fact, my learners feel it is the wide range of experiences they gained while on the course through placements at care homes, nurseries and hospitals, that helped them to stand out when making university applications and at interviews,” she added.

Mollie went on to study Paramedic Science at Coventry University and Jordan gained a place to study BSC Nursing at Worcester University.

Mollie said: “I have always wanted to be a paramedic and found the course gave me a wide range of experiences through work placements and this really helped me in the university entry interview.”

Jordan said: “I was inspired by the tutors who have been very motivating and encouraging and also helped me get into university.”
