Work experience placements

Due to Covid-19, we will continue with virtual programmes. You and your family’s safety is important to us. We understand that this is an extremely difficult time for students.

Virtual programmes will still provide you with scenarios, tours, and vital information you need when thinking about having a career within the NHS.

Did you know?

Are you aware of how many job roles exist within the NHS? At a young age it is vital to keep your options open as your opportunities are endless with more than 350 different job roles to choose from. You might find another interest and another career path. Please visit the Step Into The NHS website for more details.
