ESOL students benefit from healthy work experience

Bradford College ESOL students completed work experience

Students from Bradford College helped ensure a community health event was a success. 

Fourteen students from ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) courses at the college volunteered at the Bradford Health Mela which took place at the University of Bradford. 

The annual event, now in its sixth year, aims to engage and empower the people of Bradford to lead healthy lifestyles. Healthcare professionals offer advice and assistance on a range of health and lifestyle issues including smoking and alcohol abuse, exercise and diabetes and raise awareness of healthcare services available across the region. 

Visitors were offered free health checks including on their blood pressure, blood sugar and blood alcohol levels. Free massages, nutritional advice and personal counselling were also on offer.

All students who participated in the event were presented with certificates.

Seima Mahmood, ESOL tutor, said: "The 14 students came from Entry 2 to Level 1 and their teachers are all proud of their students taking part at the event and believe this valuable experience will make a positive impact in their future careers."
