STUDENT volunteers from Angus College are working with NHS Tayside to tackle the problem of the growing teenage pregnancy rate in Angus.
The six students have written and directed a short film and also created an interactive game which they are hoping will be used in a variety of peer education programmes to be delivered throughout the county of Angus.
The college actively supports the sexual health and the well-being of its students, providing help and advice and distribution of the c:card.
The c:card scheme is a confidential NHS service which provides quick and easy access to free condoms.
The college is also supporting Angus Council’s Youth Service by providing facilities for youth workers to deliver lunch-time services for high school pupils and college students – providing contraception advice and STI (sexually transmitted infection) and pregnancy testing.
Katie Anderson, learner engagement officer, said: “The work the students have done is inspirational.
“They have shown a great deal of maturity and creativity, whilst looking at new ways to tackle a serious issue.”
