St Michael’s Primary School, Marston.
|When were you in year 6?|
|What do you do now?|
I am at Abingdon and Witney College. When I leave college I want to work as a porter at the JR Hospital. I have been accepted to do a supported internship next year, and I am really hoping that I can do it there.
|Did I.M.P.S. help to influence this in any way?|
I remember being shown how to do CPR, dialling 999 in an emergency, and we had a tour around the A and E department
|Have you ever used any I.M.P.S. skills?|
I dialled 999 once when someone was ill in the bus queue that I was in.

|Does your job require you to use any risk management, injury prevention or first aid skills?|
Yes, when I’m volunteering at the hospital.
One day a week I volunteer at the JR hospital. I had to go on the volunteers’ induction course and fire safety training, which means that I know what to do if there is an emergency at the hospital.
|Do you think your I.M.P.S. training has made a difference to you?|
Yes. I’m generally more careful when I’m at home. I always make sure I use a circuit breaker when I use the lawnmower, and I test our smoke alarms to make sure they are working.
