A growing partnership has developed between Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust and Goole College which has enabled members of the public to benefit from a new bus shelter outside Goole hospital.
The new shelter, which was recently installed as part of the partnership will now mean patients and visitors to Goole hospital, will be able to wait for their transport in comfort, no matter the weather.
This is the first stage of an ongoing series of developments designed to enrich both the curriculum on offer at Goole College and the hospital.
It is hoped that from this growing relationship, students studying Health and Social Care will benefit from visits to the hospital, gaining crucial first-hand experience of life working within the health sector and many other students will receive the opportunity to take part and be involved in future projects with the NHS.
Caron Wright, Principal of Goole College said, “We are delighted that we have been able support the NHS with the sponsorship of the new shelter installation at Goole hospital.”
“Goole College recognises the health sector as one of the priorities of the Humber LEP and we are committed to helping fill the skills gap. By working closely with the NHS we can offer our students a closer connection to industry they are training to work within.”
“This is just the first step, and the more the partnership develops, the more we will be able to enhance our Healthcare offer which will in turn increase jobs within the Health sector.”
“The shelter looks great and we hope it really helps visitors and patients alike at the hospital."
Alastair Brooks, Associate Director Commercial Services for Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust said, “On behalf of the hospital community at Goole I would like to thank the local college for recognising the importance of safe local transport links for hospital staff and users by sponsoring the new bus shelter.”
“The partnership has consistently created excellent opportunities for staff and students to work together so that local young people have the chance to engage with healthcare professionals to boost aspiration and understanding of the industry and what a career in health has to offer.”
Goole College offers curriculum pathways in the Health sector from Foundation entry to degree level in full time, part time and also our apprenticeship provision. The launch of the new Foundation Degrees will be in September 2017 with courses in Health and Social Care and Young Children’s Learning and Development which can lead to higher degrees at the college.
Courses or apprenticeships are available in Auxiliary Health Care Assistant Level 2 , Senior Healthcare Support Worker Level 3, Higher Apprentice in Healthcare Assistant Level 4 to Clinical Support Worker Level 5 gives anyone wanting to work in the Health sector many career paths and choices to reach their career goal.
