Healthcare student gets distinction

Suzanne Haythorne

Suzanne Haythorne, Health, Science and Social Care Professions student, has passed her Level 3 Diploma in Healthcare Support with flying colours. After studying with us for two years, Suzanne has received a distinction.

Working as a Child Development Practitioner, Suzanne is now licensed to practice which will enable her to develop her knowledge, skills and behaviours in health further.

Suzanne’s learning experience has been difficult at times. She has adapted to the new remote working style as well as working on the NHS front-line throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, whilst grieving for the loss of a loved one. Therefore, Suzanne’s peers and tutors are extremely proud of her efforts.

Suzanne said: “I could only have completed my journey with my tutor, Nicola Lovell’s help, guidance, support and patience. She gave me the motivation and confidence that I needed to complete my exam, observation in practice and professional discussion.

“I am both thrilled and proud to have been awarded the grade of distinction.”

Nicola Lovell, Programme Manager for Childcare and Health at the College, added: “Suzanne joined us in 2018 and since then, developed her confidence which later enabled her to run her own health clinics working in partnership with schools and in the community.

“Suzanne continued with her studies regardless and was determined to complete her End Point Assessment which allowed her to gain her license to practice. We supported her through remote contact guiding, nurturing and supporting through mock assessments and liaising with the awarding body to ensure she was able to continue with her exams remotely. Her hard work and determination has paid off and we are so proud of what she achieved during these challenging times.”
