Early November 2016 saw a group of 40 Wyke College students pitch to the CCG as part of a weeklong National Citizenship Service (NCS) work experience opportunity.

The 40 students, who currently attend Wyke College, were tasked with creating an innovative social media campaign aimed at promoting the Healthier Hull Community Fund and encouraging teenagers to be healthier.

Sam Barlow, NHS Hull CCG Engagement Manger said:

“Working with the 40 students has been an incredible experience not only in terms of the students’ CVs and ‘work experience’, but also for us as a CCG; it has been great to be surrounded by such an enthusiastic and bright group of young people!”

“The students attended our offices for two days to get a feel for the working world, undertook market research to influence their ideas and then pitched their ideas to us – Dragons Den style.”

Prior to the week long experience with the CCG, the 40 students had visited the Yorkshire Moors for a residential trip, as part of the overall NCS project. NCS gives 15 – 17 year olds the opportunity to go on an adventure, build new skills, do something amazing for their local community, and gain work experience in the process.

Finally, Sam added:

“One of our main priorities as a CCG is to engage with the next generation, and make sure they are equipped to lead healthy, happy lives. Although only a week long project, we hope by working with the young people around other skills – such as social media, market research and presentations – they’re more aware of their health and what it means to lead a healthy lifestyle.”

“By focusing this project around the Healthier Hull Community Fund and social media, we have found a fun and interesting way to get the groups talking about what is going on in the community, services and groups which they can attend and thinking about they can help to create a healthier Hull.”
