Students, aged 16-18 years old, across Stockport College have been invited to take part in a vital meningitis scientific research programme.

On Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 February students are being encouraged to give a throat swap. The samples will be collected by scientists who are keen to determine the number of adolescents carrying a specific form of meningitis. Scientists will then be able to assess how effective the meningitis C vaccine has been since its introduction in 1998.

Students are encouraged to take part in an important national study and will have the opportunity to meet members of the Oxford University research team and find out about the benefits and underlying science.

Each swab takes about 5 seconds and will be undertaken by a trained nurse

Venue: Multi purpose hall
Dates: Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 February
Time: 9.30am-2.30pm (drop in)

Sports Science students at Stockport College were treated to a first aid demonstration by staff from Stockport County FC this week. Team physiotherapist Ali Gibb, former County legend, and Bobby Lofthouse, current first team regular, were on hand to show students some of the skills required to treat sports injuries.

Ali and Bobby also discussed their careers and the qualifications they have studied to help them progress. Ali, who enjoyed a professional football career with a number of league clubs, studied a degree in finance but realised his true vocation was physiotherapy. At present he is studying a Bsc in Physiotherapy at Salford University which he hopes to conclude in July. Bobby, from Glossop, joined Stockport County in 2013 and is keen to progress to play in the football league.

Danielle Hope; Btec Sports Science Level 3 student, was happy to assist Ali to show students how to strap an ankle injury.

Every student who attended the session was given a free ticket to County's next home game.

Illustration students from University Centre Stockport College have been praised by senior managers at Stepping Hill hospital for brightening up public areas as part of an internal communication plan.

University Centre Stockport College was approached by Stockport NHS Foundation Trust to create large format artwork for link corridors to communicate the core vision and values of the newly formed Trust. Stepping Hill hospital treats 500,000 patients each year and is the second largest employer in Stockport.

Bill Gregory, Director of Finance, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust said: "I just wanted to thank the students and the college for their engagement in the artwork project with the hospital. Three groups came to our Board meeting yesterday to show us their work. I was really impressed with the quality of the work and originality, but also the confidence of the students explaining what they had been doing".

The illustration students were briefed to produce : 'an inspirational large format artwork that effectively conveys our core commitment to caring for every aspect of patients' health'. The brief also asked students to consider the difference the hospital makes to peoples' lives through its expert services such as neonatal, maternity and stroke units. The students were also encouraged to be creative and convey the wider geographic area of the Trust's service that includes Buxton and High Peak.

Joanna Spicer, course tutor said: "Working briefs offer undergraduates at University Centre Stockport College opportunities to use their skills in real life situations. The experience of developing projects, like the one at Stepping Hill hospital, are vital for developing confidence and knowledge in the workplace. We are delighted to work with Stockport NHS Trust and are grateful for their support. I hope we can help them make a difference for their patience".

A Stockport College tutor has been shortlisted for an award as one of the best further and higher education teachers by a national magazine.

Stephen Field, who teaches association of accountancy technician (AAT) programmes at the Wellington Road campus, has been recognised for the quality of his teaching by financial sector specialist PQ magazine. Stephen discovered he had been nominated when he received an invitation to attend an awards ceremony at Café du Paris in London next month. He has been named with four other teachers who represent further and higher education institutions from across the UK.

Stephen, from Nantwich, started his teaching career at Stockport College six years ago and 'hasn't looked back' as he has helped countless students achieve their ambition of a career in accountancy.

Following a successful 22 year retail and commercial banking career Stephen pursued his interest in training and development when he worked as an AAT assessor with a training provider. He continued to update his skills and qualifications by embarking on the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) which he has studied 'on and off' for ten years.

His appointment at Stockport College has proved to be beneficial to both the students and the tutor himself.

Stephen said: ' Stockport College helped me with my own personal development by sponsoring me to complete the last two units of the ACCA qualifications. I am now a chartered accountant which has helped me deliver lessons to the highest standard. Knowing your stuff and being able to answer a wide range of questions contributes to the motivation and success of the students'.

The nomination for teacher of the year from PQ magazine reflects both the investment Stephen and his students have made in their learning.

Stephen said: 'It's a great feeling helping other people achieve their goals. I am in touch with many former Stockport College students and it gives me great pleasure to follow their careers and progression to chartered status. I was surprised to learn of my nomination but am looking forward to a night out in London with my wife. It will be a great opportunity to brush shoulders with the best in the accountancy world'.

The PQ magazine awards take place at Café du Paris in London on Tuesday 10 February 2015.
