From education to employment

College gives students an insight into the human body thanks to Medical Mavericks workshops

Local school students were recently given the opportunity to explore health and medical science during a number of Medical Mavericks workshops at East Sussex College.

Around 250 Year 10 and 11 students from local schools across East Sussex, including Priory School, Cavendish, Bexhill Academy, and Hastings Academy, attended the three-hour workshops at the college to gain an insight into the human body and find out about careers in the medical industry.

The workshops took place on Wednesday 8th May in Hastings, Thursday 9th May in Eastbourne, and Friday 10th May in Lewes. Each session gave the students the opportunity to use real medical kits, ultrasound machines, ECG machines, and have a go at some keyhole surgery.

Students from Eastbourne Academy said that they had “an awesome time” and that the Medical Mavericks workshops were “absolutely excellent”.

The college enlisted the help of Medical Mavericks, the UK’s number one STEM and Sport Science careers enrichment experience, to help school students discover what progression routes there are from school, through college and university, and into health and medical careers.
