A DRAMATIC recreation of a serious road crash is to be used in a bid to encourage youngsters into a career in health and social care.

Students from Hammonds High School's drama department will act out the incident next week in front of more than 100 14 and 15-year-olds at Swaffham's EcoTech Centre.

The scenario will help students learn about the types of health and social care areas which patients might encounter after an accident.

During a series of workshops the youngsters will also learn about the role played by emergency service and health professionals and get a flavour of what a career in those organisations might like.

The event has been commissioned by Aimhigher Norfolk, which tries to widen participation in higher education.

Organiser Kate Britten said: “This is an important day for the students as it is their opportunity to hear directly from these professionals about really interesting career opportunities.

“Whether it is in medical work, social care and services, drug action, or youth offending, there's an array of options that the students will have unprecedented access to learning about.”
