Jeumari hopes to follow in his mother’s nursing footsteps

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.”
