Bradford University students Raizana and Fateha visited Notre Dame on the 6th November to support the year 13 Health T Level students and Teaching Team with a practical mock day. Students in turn were observed under exam conditions taking physiological measurements with patients. The Bradford University students then gave invaluable verbal and written feedback to our Notre Dame students, focusing on what went well and how they could improve. Raizana and Fateha gave lots of clinical skills advice and also techniques to promote person centred care. For example, they were able to draw on their real life experience of taking physiological measurements everyday on tehri placement.
Amy Hall, Acting Head of Health and Social Care quotes: 'We can't thank the students from Bradford University enough. They gave some very valuable guidance and feedback to our students on their practical care skills. Notre Dame students commented on how useful it was to hear it from someone who was working in health settings day in and day out. They found having the students in college and working with them motivating and inspiring. Since receiving the feedback from the Bradford University students, we have seen a marked improvement in our students practical skills.'
