Widening Participation in Action at Salford Royal
A 'Learning Matters' awards 2017 Case Study.
The project sponsor gave a personal account of her motivations behind the programme:
“I remember vividly leaving school and not really knowing exactly what I wanted as a career. I knew I wanted to care for people in some way and by default went to work as a Health Care Assistant at 16 years of age. Even though I knew I wanted to ‘care’ for people, I really had no idea what other roles there were in the NHS...as project sponsor I wanted to introduce an initiative to support the widening participation agenda within the Salford locality.
