Springfield’s Youth Academy Inspires Students at Morley High

Springfield’s Youth Academy has received excellent praise following our involvement with young people at Morley High School in Leeds.

Tracey Hopkinson, our Youth Academy Lead, has participated in a series of teaching sessions at the high school, with the aim to encourage more young people into the Healthcare Sector.

Throughout these sessions, Tracey has offered employability support through various workshops, including mock interviews, CV writing as well as care work related sessions, such as dementia training. Our Youth Academy hopes to showcase the highlights of care work to young people, and increase their chances of employability once they leave education.

Carly Gascoigne, faculty leader for social sciences, praised the work Tracey had done with her students.

“The health care training sessions provided for the Year 11 students have proven immensely beneficial, equipping them with crucial skills and knowledge for their future endeavours.

The safeguarding sessions have empowered them with the ability to recognise and respond to signs of vulnerability and abuse, fostering a safer environment for both themselves and others. Additionally, the dementia training has sensitised them to the needs of individuals affected by the condition, enabling them to offer more compassionate and effective care.

The mock interviews and CV writing workshops have honed their professional skills, instilling confidence and readiness for the workforce, which has been evidenced by students bringing in apprenticeship application to be quality checked by Tracey.

Overall, these sessions have not only expanded their understanding of healthcare but also enhanced their employability and interpersonal competencies, preparing them for their future pursuits in the healthcare sector, which I am sure many more will be joining now they have completed these sessions!

Thank you once again Tracey!”

Here at Springfield, we are so proud of the work that Tracey and the Youth Academy do amongst young people in our community. We feel privileged to support our next generation of healthcare workers!
