    College pledges to support nursing shortage

    March 6th 2017

    After a recent report revealed the UK is dangerously short of nurses, Wigan & Leigh College has vowed to support the borough and region’s growing skills gap within the sector. 

    The Health & Social Care sector, which is the second largest employer in the Wigan borough, is reported to require over two million new workers in the UK by 2022.

    The College already provides different pathways into a career in nursing and has pledged its support to train aspiring nurses as the region’s skills shortage increases.

    Poyee Chan, Head of the Pre-Degree Nursing Programme at Wigan & Leigh College said, “The College works closely with the NHS to provide skilled, reliable and qualified trained health professionals who are ready to enter a health care environment. The College launched a pioneering programme in 2016 to recruit a group of aspiring nurses to join the College’s Pre-Degree Nursing programme which provides students with a guaranteed place at Edge Hill University, followed by employment within the borough’s NHS trust. The programme has attracted a high calibre of students which we will replicate this year for our new intake of nursing students.”

    Molly Evans, Pre-Degree Nursing student and former Latham High School pupil added, “I’ve always wanted to help people and found a career in nursing would be the best way to do so. I can’t wait to kick start my career as I believe it will be rewarding and this unique programme will enable me to fulfil my full potential. The programme enables me to work within Wigan, Wrightington & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust within their hospital wards and secures me a place at Edge Hill University.”

    As well as providing an innovative nursing programme with secured progression into the nursing sector, the College also provides budding health professionals with an A Level pathway into the sector. 

    School leavers are able to study on the College’s popular Health Professional pathway which is part of the A Level Professional Honours Programme. Students study complimentary A Level subjects, Biology, English Combined and Psychology or Sociology to lead them onto Nursing degrees.  In addition, students can also choose a further AS Level subject in their first year of study.

    The students complete a weekly Professional Development Day, similar to the Pre-Degree Nurses, in a real health care environment which include placements within local hospitals.

    A Level student and aspiring nurse, Caitlin Knowles, 16, commented, “I joined the College to help me secure a place at university studying Paediatric Nursing. After discovering the College’s A Level programme I decided to enrol as I knew the course would provide me with the work experience, qualifications, additional qualifications and knowledge to follow my dream of my becoming a nurse. The course has prepared me for university through interview technique workshops, guest speaker visits, first aid training and the teaching provided by the supportive tutors.”
