Queen Elizabeth Hospital: Teenage Cancer Trust Young Persons Unit
The aim of the education service on the Young person’s Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital has been to develop and implement a comprehensive and effective model of engaging, teaching and supporting teenagers and Young Adults (TYA), aged 16-24yrs.
The key focus of this post is:
‘'To fully support all patients with their ambitions and goals through the provision of high quality, personalised and specialist education that allows them to progress, achieve and move forward”
All young people are offered a variety of bespoke and individually tailored teaching and learning sessions on a regular basis, in a range of subjects and qualifications: including GCSE's, Maths and English Functional Skills, BTEC levels 1-3, ‘A’ levels to dissertations at Degree level, employability skills and careers guidance.
Young people can complete external academic examinations on the unit enabling inpatients to complete their ‘A’ Level examinations, Functional skills Maths and English and complete degree assessments. Liaising with Universities, Colleges and Schools to support the young person in continuation of their studies has been an important and ongoing development of the service.
