With a passion for caring for others, Kirsty enrolled at Northumberland College to gain the qualifications she needed to start a career in the NHS and become a paramedic.

Health & Social Care

To start my new career in the NHS and gain qualification to help me go further.

It made it easy as all the help I needed was there. My tutor was really helpful.

Jacqueline had a good way of describing things helping us to understand certain things. She would always tell a story to explain answers to questions!

Yes I would. I feel like my time in this course was quick and very challenging at times, with the help from Jaqueline i got there.

I am completing my Care Certificate for my new role as a nursing assistant at Cramlington Hospital.

Studying at Northumberland College has given me the knowledge to go into a new job and do it to a high standard.  It has helped me develop the confidence to go and do more.
