An aspiring medical student from Aberdeen has organised an exhibition to provide young people with information on how they can work within the health service.
Christopher Connon has arranged the free Health and Young People Exhibition, which will take place at Cults Academy on November 30.
The 17-year-old came up with the idea after receiving feedback from his fellow pupils.
After discussing how difficult it is to pick a career in the health sector, this information event has been set up for pupils in the north-east.
Key exhibitors, including Aberdeen University, Robert Gordon University, NHS Grampian, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS), Scottish Ambulance and the Coastguard, will be in attendance at the exhibition.
Mr Connon said: “I know from my own experience of researching career paths within the health sector that there isn’t a great deal of information available locally about job opportunities in the industry, despite loads of potential roles to consider.”
The sixth-year Cults Academy pupil is hoping to be a doctor himself and has applied to Aberdeen University to study medicine next year.
David Barnett, head teacher at Cults Academy said: “This event has been entirely devised and organised by our pupils – a fabulous example of young people taking the initiative and organising something of huge benefit to other young people.
“This event will bring huge relevance to our young people’s learning as they decide upon their continuing career pathways.”
