This is a unique two year course for those aged 14 years old and who are hoping to move on to a career in nursing or another health related profession.
If you are now in Year 9 now, instead of staying at school for Years 10 and 11, you can study the Nursing and Health Pre-Cadet Programme at the Hugh Baird 14 -16 College.
The Nursing and Health Pre-Cadet Programme is supported by the NHS and you will benefit from guest speakers and visits to hospitals across the region. You will also have the opportunity to undertake short health care sector specific placements.
You will also study GCSEs in Maths, English Language, Science (Dual Award), Computer Science and Citizenship.
On completion of Nursing and Health Pre-Cadet Programme, you will have the opportunity to transition on to the full Nursing and Health Cadet Programme or on to a related course at Level 3.
For those wishing to move on to another career path, many of the skills developed on this course are transferrable and are applicable and welcomed in other subject areas and industries.
The Nursing and Health Cadet Programme is subjected to limited places and involves a selection process run by Hugh Baird College and Aintree University Hospital.
