Huddersfield New College (HNC) Health and Social Care students recently attended a talk by Jean Hatton from the University of Huddersfield.


Jean, who teaches on the Youth and Community Work degree programme at the University, gave a fascinating talk about the challenges that today’s young people face and how Youth Workers can make a genuinely positive impact on the outcomes of adolescents. The talk sparked an insightful and enlightening discussion on themes such as the use of social media, racism, and the current pressures young people in society face.


Students were also able to find out more about the application process, including some tips on writing their UCAS applications, as well as discovering more about life at the university.


Zoe Potts, Course Leader for Applied Health and Social Care, comments “It was wonderful to welcome Jean to HNC to showcase the importance of support work in the community, and how important early intervention is for our young people who experience challenges in their home lives and beyond. This is a critical time for our students who are in the process of making decisions about their future steps, and understanding the breadth of careers possible from studying Health and Social Care at HNC is hugely beneficial in helping them to make the right decision for them”.
