Next Generation of Healthcare Professionals Recognised at Award Ceremony

Blackburn College students have been recognised at an annual award ceremony held at Royal Blackburn Hospital.

Those studying the Health and Social Care Cadet Programme at Blackburn College were recognised for their workplace contributions at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust (ELHT).

Students on Blackburn College’s Cadet Programme take part in 750 hours of guaranteed work placement at Royal Blackburn Hospital.

Mandy Aspden, Head of School for Early Years, Health and Wellbeing at Blackburn College said: “We are really proud of what our Cadets have achieved over the past 2 years.

“We look forward to continuing to work with the Trust to develop the next generation of nurses and other healthcare professionals.”

Amongst those recognised was Chloe Morgan, 17, who won the Special Merit Award for Blackburn College.

Chloe and her fellow Cadets will now move on to new challenges, following completion of their Level 3 Extended Diploma – which is equivalent to studying A-Levels.

The ceremony was also attended by College staff, family members and distinguished speakers from ELHT – including Education Director Ian Stanley.

A large proportion of those who complete the Cadet Programme progress to university and pursue successful careers in the sector.

Places on Health and Social Care courses are still available for September 2019 entry. Visit to make an application.
