Ellie Pickles

  • Nursing Assistant, NHS
  • Health and Social Care

Ellie developed a wide range of skills when studying Health and Social Care at Hopwood. As well as improving her understanding of the industry thanks to the course criteria, she also found herself becoming better at communicating, working in a team, being organised and exercising leadership.

Ultimately the course was the perfect springboard into the NHS, where she now works as a nursing assistant. It’s a job that she loves and worked hard to secure.

Like many students, Ellie’s course also gave her the opportunity to go into Higher Education. She’s now also currently studying Adult Nursing at the University of Salford.

“Studying at the college helped me to develop strong communication, leadership, teamwork and organisational skills. It ultimately enabled me to pursue a career in the job that I love the most.”
