A pupil from BGS is the Yorkshire and Humber winner of the Step into the NHS national schools’ competition.
Dylan Singh Aujla, age 14 from Huddersfield, impressed the judges with his entry to promote the role of an emergency-call handler to his peers. He created a website which allowed students to better understand what an emergency-call handler does on a day-to-day basis.
The competition, organised by Health Education England (HEE), attracted numerous entries and more than 3,000 students were involved.
It aims to promote the 350-plus careers available in health and students had to design an advertisement and job description for their chosen role.
Simon Hinchliffe, Headmaster, said: “I am delighted that Dylan Singh Aujla has been named as one of the regional winners.
“Dylan always gives 100 per cent and I’m pleased that his hard work has been recognised. Bradford Grammar School has a long tradition of preparing students for medical degrees and careers and it is a pleasure to support this NHS competition.”
Dylan added: “I looked at the role of an emergency-call handler because I believe it’s a vital job in the NHS. Staff that answer 999 calls make a big difference to people’s lives. Not every career in the NHS requires high-level qualifications although each role plays an essential part in changing people’s lives.”
