In the second of our interviews with VET students, VET guru Tonya Frost caught up with year 10 student Jessica Parker.
Cert III in Allied Health Assistance.
I really enjoy the pracs we do, for example using harnesses to lift and move people and the blood pressure monitoring equipment.
Even though I know they are a vital part of the course and keeping safe, I find the OH&S and theory classes a bit boring.
Yes, I will definitely aim to work in the medical field when graduating in year 12. Ideally, I would really love to go to uni to study paramedicine.
I would definitely tell them to make sure they listen carefully in class and keep up with their bookwork.
I would change its structure. I would like to evenly split our time every week between prac and theory more evenly. At the moment we do more theory than prac.
Seven out of 10.
