RCGP Wales Schools Resources

Webinars - November 2020

RCGP Wales has an established history of running and supporting widening-access events for school pupils across Wales. These face to face events occur in both South and North Wales and receive the support and active participation of colleagues from both Medical Schools within Wales. The Circumstances brought about by the pandemic in 2020 resulted in a change in the formatting and delivery and saw a move to an online delivery model. This model was developed over the Summer of 2020 and used for the first time in November 2020.

On Wednesday 18 November 2020, RCGP Wales hosted four widening-access webinars, all running simultaneously. Two for school students (one English and one Welsh language) and two for parents (one in each language stream). On the day, over 200 students and parents logged on to participate in the webinar. Students attended from 42 schools across the whole of Wales. The event was facilitated by 23 volunteers made up of practicing GPs and current medical students from both Cardiff and Swansea Medical schools.

The key resources used and created for the webinar can be found using the links below:
