Franklin Welcomes Former Health and Social Care Student for Industry Session

Staff and students welcomed former Health and Social Care student Giselle Kesson back to the classroom for an industry insight into working in the health and social care sector and what they could expect when undertaking placements.

Giselle is a registered nurse working within The NHS Humber Health Partnership at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, Grimsby. She started her journey at Franklin College, studying Health and Social Care, and then progressed to study an Adult Nursing Diploma at the University of Nottingham, achieving her Adult Nursing registration with the NMC in 2006. She has since undertaken further study, gaining a BSc in Health Professional Studies at the University of Hull.

 Giselle said: “My nursing career began working within the operating theatres department, which progressed into an interest in education and teaching other health professionals. I have now been working with the Practice Development Team for ten years.

“My role includes the support, development and implementation of the education, induction, and preceptorship of new staff to the NHS organisation. As part of my role, I deliver training, create programmes of education and encourage the development of our substantive workforce. This workstream has provided an excellent opportunity for me to reconnect with Franklin and inspire the future workforce of the NHS. 

 “I am now a mentor for students within Franklin's Career Academy, which is something I have enjoyed for several years. I also collaborate with the Health and Social Care Team and the Career Academy at Franklin to create work experience/internship opportunities for students, giving them insight into the number of roles within the NHS and the daily clinical duties of the many professions. The work experience element of the partnership has provided valuable learning for a number of students, some of which are now undertaking their university studies or entering their career within the NHS.”
