Work Experience Opportunities

The Work experience date is June 6th.

This programme is available to support all of your aspiring healthcare students as an alternative to in-person NHS work experience during the pandemic. 

During the work experience day, students will follow 2 patients from their initial presentation to recovery. Students will observe the healthcare professionals as they interact with the patients and also each other. Students will have an opportunity to ask questions and gain knowledge through teaching. This will help students to make an informed career decision as well as learn about how healthcare professionals work together as part of a multidisciplinary team. Each work experience day is completely different and students will be able to build on their knowledge of NHS careers as they see different patient cases and their healthcare professionals work in a variety of settings, such as hospital and community.

You can learn more and your students can register for the programme here

Students will receive certificates as evidence of having participated in the work experience programme. Students can register individually through the website link above. Places are just £10 a day to cover administrative costs and run the tech on the day. We look forward to providing aspiring healthcare students with an amazing work experience day!
