Medical, Health & Social Care Academy

Our pioneering Medical , Health & Social Care Academy was established in 2015 between SM6 and the NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group in order to support local students onto NHS and Social Care pathways.

What is the MHSC Academy?

It is a 2-year training, development and enrichment programme that runs alongside your sixth form studies and is delivered in partnership with the local NHS providers of health care and social care as well as higher education providers Hull University and Hull and York Medical School.

It has been established to ensure that our students are successful when applying for the next step towards any career in health or social care, and in some cases, it may even lead directly to a job. With this initiative, we aim to increase the NHS & Social Care workforce, particularly in the local area.

Who is the Medical Health & Social Care Academy for?

It is for any student entering SM6 in Year 12 that is interested in a career in Health or Social Care.

There are no specific grade entry requirements to join the MHSC Academy, however there may be specific grades required depending on your choice of subjects.

Alongside our NHS and university partners, we will be able to advise you as to the best subject/qualification choices for you to ensure that you have the best chance of success in entering into your chosen NHS or Social Care career.

Why should I join the MHSC Academy?

Even though the news is full of critical shortages in key NHS professions, it is still very competitive to get on to the right course of study or career pathway. Degree courses such as medicine, midwifery, nursing, psychology, physiotherapy and many others are significantly over-subscribed and this programme is designed to ensure your application is strong and your chance of success is high.

Joining the MHSC Academy will also enable you to see if you like the career before you further commit to it. If during the time you are in the MHSC Academy your career aspirations change, then you will be fully supported to explore other options, including different health and social care careers you might not have known existed before you joined the programme.

Our partnerships with Hull University and HYMS also provide additional career choice support, including a review of their entry requirements and how to make your application the strongest it can possibly be.
