Students from North Somerset Enterprise and Technology College (NSETC) hosted an ‘excellent’ health promotion event which aimed to highlight a host of different health-related issues.

Not only did the health and social care students research topics which interested them, they also made their findings more interesting by creating information packs, displays and quizzes.

There were a number of different topics, including alcohol awareness, mental health, sexual health and even healthy eating.

NSETC’s health and social care lecturer, Sarah-Jane Lewis, said 
she was pleased to see her
students handle themselves so professionally.

She said: “The students were a real credit to themselves and NSETC.

“They produced some excellent work and showed high levels of professionalism in giving information to their peers.”

There were outside visitors to the event as well as fellow students who learnt all about the impact different conditions can have on health.

The students also presented their findings to others, showcasing how much they have learnt and their presentation skills.

Darran George, NSETC’s interim principal, added: “We are very proud of the professional way in which the students organised and handled the event.

“At NSETC, we work hard to prepare our students for the working world so it was brilliant to see our students run such a successful event.”
