Students from the Access to Higher Education course organised and presented a Health Awareness exhibition. Level 2 and 3 Health and Social Care students visited the event, where they were able to walk around the displays and find out more about various health topics.
Each group of Access to Higher Education students chose a health topic, designed display stands and put together information packs. The interactive event included the chance to find out about sexual health, the effects of drugs and alcohol and also the opportunity for the Health & Social Care students to try out activities such as reading road signs wearing beer goggles!
The students were on hand to answer questions and share what they had learned, and the event was an informative but fun learning experience for the Health and Social Care students.
This health awareness project was an assignment for the Access to Higher Education students, who wish to study at university and gain the qualifications to enable them to work in their chosen careers.
