Ex-student Molly Inspires Health & Social Care Students

Molly McCarron (a former HSC student) visited Heath Park School on Wednesday 9th May 2018. She spoke to Health & Social Care students in Sixth Form, sharing her journey from the last 12 months.

Molly always wanted to go to university and start a career in the NHS. Unfortunately, in Year 13 she was unable to secure a university place. However, Molly’s resilience and positivity meant she was going to proceed with plan B and apply for NHS apprenticeships; Molly successfully started her Level 2 apprenticeship at New Cross Hospital in the Orthopaedics department in August 2017. She has gained a wealth of experience and realised first-hand the skills and qualities required to work in the NHS. Doing the apprenticeship has allowed Molly to grow in confidence and trust her own judgement. Molly has re-applied for university, and will start her Adult Nursing degree at Wolverhampton University in January 2019.

Molly spoke to the students with honesty and inspiration, she motivated them to establish a work ethic, have excellent attendance and punctuality, value placements and work experience opportunities, research university courses, attend university open days and actively take advice and support from staff and family.

Molly is a success story, who shines through her perseverance and optimism, giving encouragement to the Health & Social Care students. Moral of the story…never give up!
