YEAR 11 HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE STUDENTS DISCUSS BODY IMAGE WITH YEAR 9s

08 November 2022  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

Year 11 Health and Social Care students have been completing a practical assessment as part of their coursework unit ‘Effective Communication in Health and Social Care. They worked with a group of Year 9 students to demonstrate their communication skills by responding to the exam board’s task: ‘Discuss with a group of youth club members how body image is presented in the media’.

The students were really resourceful and applied a variety of methods of communication to support their discussions. Some had prepared slides, others used video clips, quizzes and worksheets to engage the Year 9 students and raise their awareness of techniques used to flood the media with unreal body representations.

Caroline Dawson, Lead Teacher for Health and Social Care, said: “It was a delight to witness the Health and Social Care students make it their mission to share with the Year 9 students how this mis-information must be reckoned with and not admired. Their responsible, sensitive approach along with their enthusiasm evidenced how much they wanted the Year 9 students to be confident in their own unique individuality. The Year 9s responded brilliantly to the fact that they were helping the Year 11 students to pass their assessments and embraced the discussions with maturity and genuine interest.”

“It was not only a successful assessment but also a wonderful opportunity for the different year groups to engage and develop their respect for each other.”
