The College of West Anglia and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Lynn joined forces to offer aspiring nurses and paramedics an insight into the NHS interview process.

Thirty level 3 Extended Diploma students were interviewed across two days in an attempt to develop university interview skills in those who have applied to UCAS to do a range of course.

Margaret Hallett, course director for the OCR nursing and Paramedic Academy, said: “Lots of our students already have interviews arranged at various universities but this

was a chance to have a ‘real’ experience with NHS professionals in an NHS setting.

“The feedback from students was excellent and they all gained from this valuable experience.”

Julia Saunders, practice development nurse at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, said: “We are so pleased to be working in partnership with the College of West Anglia. 

“We were keen to offer students mock interviews that were as realistic as possible, and our overall impression of the students is very high.”
