Name: Ella Marshall

Achievement: Paramedic

Year of leaving school: 2013

Since leaving school IN 2013 I studied 1 year of Business BTEC as I wasn’t 100% sure of what I wanted to do, I completed the year with D*D*. However, throughout my time studying business I knew that I wanted to work in health care. Therefore, I gained some work experience/volunteering which reinforced my love and desire to work in the health care sector. So, I transferred courses to study Health and Social Care BTEC extended Diploma (level 3), I completed the course and finished with D*D*D* (distinction). I then applied to various universities to study a degree in Paramedic Practice.

Although in school years I was technically a year ‘behind’ it enabled me to mature, gain my driving license which was a paramedic requirement, I gained work experience, I worked part time and saved money.

I gained a place at Teesside University, my course was a mixture of presentations, essays, OSCE’s (practical exams), exams and full time placement.

I have completed my Bachelor of Science degree and I have graduated with a First class honours in Paramedic Practice.

Since recently finishing university I have now started a job with the Yorkshire Ambulance Service, fulfilling my dream career as a fully qualified Paramedic.

I will be forever grateful for the education, encouragement and support provided by all of the staff at Canon Lee.
