NHS "Made in Sheffield" Ambassadors Launch

I attended the launch event for the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust "Made in Sheffield" Ambassadors yesterday afternoon at the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service Training Centre. 
Following on from the Cutlers' "Made in Sheffield" programme, and using the curriculum and skills frameworks already developed, the Trust is working with a selected group of schools to provide a unique opportunity for their young people to gain insight into the workings of the hospital trust and appreciate the huge range of opportunities there are to work for one of the largest employers in the Sheffield City Region. The event celebrated the developing partnership between the Trust and Firth Park Community College, Forge Valley Community School and Meadowhead School and Langages College. In front of a packed audience of parents and carers, Tony Peddar, Chair of the Trust, congratulated the young ambassadors who had been selected from each school and presented them with their NHS 'Ambassadors' polo shirt. Jackie Drayton, the lead member for Children, Young People & Families, Lifelong Learning & Skills from Sheffield City Council talked about the importance of this work and the need to provide opportunities for all young people to achieve their potential. It will be interesting to watch these wonderful young people over the next few years taking advantage of this unique opportunity.
