Paramedic Graduates Achieve 100% Employment Rate
Every student who graduated with a DipHE Paramedic Practice in 2011 gained employment with the North West Ambulance Service.
Elli McKecknie, DipHE Paramedic Practice graduate, says of her new job: “The job is going really well. I feel so fortunate in this economic climate to not only have a job, but to have a job that I love. I don’t know what challenges the day will throw my way, each day brings something new and there aren’t many jobs like that”.
“Of course there are the hard days”, explains James, DipHE Paramedic Practice graduate. “The times when you have to tell someone that their loved one has died or to witness a cardiac arrest but to be able to save or change someone’s life, or help be a part of bringing a new life into the world, that’s a real privilege”.
