Health and social care student Jeumari Ayson is hoping to follow in his mother’s footsteps by becoming an NHS nurse.

The 17-year-old former Hadley Learning Community student is one of just a handful of male students on the current Telford College course.

He said: “I’ve joined the level two health and social care course with the intention of progressing onto level three, then going onto university to study nursing.

“I want to be a nurse supporting surgeons in the operating theatre. I find it fascinating and I am focused on making this my career.”

He added: “My mother is a nurse, and she’s always influenced me. I love hearing her stories about nursing, and helping children and adults to get better – I get a great deal of motivation from this.

“I know nursing isn’t an easy career, but I am committed to it.”

To any other male considering a career in health and social care on a Telford College course, Jeumari said: “Do it. We learn so much about lots of different subjects including policy, rules and regulations, care companies, management and skills development.

“It’s easy to start in health and social care and develop a wide range of transferable skills.

“Career opportunities are endless with the qualifications from these Telford College courses, including social working, teaching, and youth working.”

Tutor Claire Osborn said: “Jeumari is a hard worker and very academically capable. He’s a quiet member of the group who gets his head down without distraction – and that shows in his assignment work.”
