The University of Hull, through the Faculty of Health and Social Care, provides education across the fields of nursing, midwifery and
operating department practice; working in conjunction with health providers they also educate associate practitioners, clinical psychologists and physician’s associates. The faculty are delighted to be an integral partner with St Mary’s MHSC Academy.
Pupils from the academy have access to bespoke sessions delivered by staff from the university in the clinical skills suite at the university. They also benefit from close links to academic advice regarding their chosen profession and making an application to university. These links with the university include having access to on campus facilities such as the library.
Hull York Medical School is delighted to be working with St Mary’s Academy on the Medical, Health and Social Care Academy. This initiative
to encourage more young people to consider a career in the healthcare professions is vital in a city like Hull which is facing significant shortages in the workforce.
Hull City Council
Hull City Council believes that it is vital to engage with our young people to ensure that the City and the people of Hull thrive in the future. We are
supporting the Academy through joint working, placements and mentorship as we are keen to be part of developing the workforce of the future.
Adult social care in Hull is committed to supporting people to “Have a Life and not a Service.” We want to work with young people to build a workforce committed to prevention of ill health and maintaining independence and wellbeing for as long as possible. Children’s social care in Hull is committed to creating a service in which the conditions for outstanding practice are assured and the best outcomes for children and families are achieved. A skilled and confident workforce is key to achieving the best outcomes and keeping children and young people at the centre of our practice. We
are keen to support the development of young people who may, in the future, choose a career in children’s social care.
Sergeant James McKellar leads the communities policing team that work with St Mary’s Academy:
“Our work with the Academy is important in helping to promote positive lifestyles and build relationships between Humberside Police and young people.
We work within the school and wider community to deliver positive messages and are a key part of school life. We promote three key projects engaging with young people operating across the force area namely, Lifestyle, which has now been running for almost 30 years, Night Challenge and Rock Challenge. All are aimed at helping us engage with young people in a positive way and forge relationships with them that last into their adult lives. Humberside Police are part of the wider partnership and we work extensively towards putting people at the heart of what we do to make
the Humber region a safer environment to live in.”
“Humberside Fire and Rescue is a key player in Hull 2020 and we were delighted to be one of the nine original partners who set out to transform public services in Hull.
As an organisation, we have become increasingly involved in health issues having worked with frail and vulnerable people for many years whilst carrying out home fire safety visits. More initiatives have followed with our health partners, such as the falls response team and Emergency First Responder teams in Hull. I envisage even closer working with local health bodies in the future and the new Academy at St Mary’s College will ensure that the city has both the emergency response and vital after care services the people of Hull deserve.”
