Canterbury Christ Church University is keen to develop its existing bank of co-teachers with learning disabilities, particularly for the Simulated Hospital Admissions that it delivers to students of Adult Nursing. Teachers are required, in small groups, to meet a group of nursing students and act as their “patients” to be admitted to a ward; hospital passports are also completed. Volunteers can be remunerated either as individuals, as groups, or be offered hospitality (i.e lunch!) in return.
If any individual or group is interested, please contact either Cathy Bernal (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Andy Nazarjuk (andy.nazarjuk@Canterbury.ac.uk) for further information. We look forward to hearing from you!
