The Winning Team will be presented with the Blended Learning UK Innovation Award, which will be given for the most successful project, and the Institution will be awarded £500.00 with a runner-up prize of £250.00 towards their Digital Technology Department.

As a hospital, we are keen to work with young minds of the future, to bring in innovation, gaming, and immersive technology skills, with potential to unlock new ways of delivering training and blended learning. We are delighted to be working with East Norfolk Sixth Form College on this project who share our aspirations and vision for the future of healthcare and training.

The timeline for this project is as below:

Project Launch:  East Norfolk Sixth Form “Introduction to Medicine” Conference on the 29th January 2024.   

Project Grand Final:  July 2024 (Date to be confirmed). 

Blended Learning UK is part of the James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and provides innovative blended learning strategies in healthcare education and training to optimise learner engagement, patient outcomes and global workforce challenges. We are acknowledged as a Centre of Excellence for online blended learning education by Healthcare UK (NHS) and are currently recruiting candidates from over 60 countries.

We are delighted to have been invited to attend East Norfolk Sixth Form College “Introduction to Medicine” Conference on the 29th January 2024. Six secondary schools with students from year 9 and 10 will be in attendance. This conference is aimed at students considering pursuing a career in Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science.  Students will be given the opportunity to use digital technology and medical simulators to help create captivating, interactive and enlightening programs that could help lead to the future of healthcare education. They will also participate in workshops on physiological measurements in the College’s bespoke Health Suite and on medical ethics.


This event will see the launch of a competition for students to design a blended learning package to train other students to deliver cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Students will be asked to work in teams to plan, design, and pitch a blended learning package, using immersive technology, to train school children how to:

  • Recognise a cardiac arrest.
  • Call for help.
  • Deliver CPR.
  • Use an automated external deliberator (AED).
