College student becomes St John Ambulance Regional Representative  

“My name is Lauren, I’m 17 years old and a student at the College. I’m currently studying my Level 3 Health and Social Care Technical Diploma and have been with St John Ambulance since I was 14. I decided to join as I always aspired to become a paramedic.

“I love the course in college – I am surrounded by the best people and have made really good friends. Our tutors push us for us to succeed and it has really benefited me as I recently got my exam grade back and got a merit. We had our professional discussion one week ago and had to talk for 45 minutes to link our placement in with our course.

 

 

“Being a St John’s Ambulance cadet is an amazing experience as I am allowed to go to all kinds of events such as Liverpool and Everton football matches, the Grand National and many others. I’ve treated over 30 casualties across a range of major and minor incidents. It has really improved my confidence as I have to talk to a range of different people all with different conditions. No day is the same working with St John Ambulance, and I would really recommend it to so many young people.

“I recently got nominated by my unit to go for ‘cadet of the year’. I went to the competition and actually came out with a different role rather than cadet of the year. My new role is just as important – I am now the North Regional representative for Cheshire and Merseyside – this means I am our youth voice as a district, and I meet with other representatives from all over the North to discuss how our youth can have better opportunities. If there are any problems in our district, then I will be the one to come to and I will bring them up with the rest of the North to see how their districts compare.

“Being the North Regional representative for Cheshire and Merseyside means I can help to give our youth a voice and get our opinions heard. Having this role makes me feel proud of myself as I know that I can make a difference at St John Ambulance and be the solution to any problems.”

If, like Lauren, you’re interested in starting a career in Health and Social Care then take a look at our courses for September, all of which are designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to be successful in your field. Find out more here.
