Work Experience

Work Experience

We work closely with local schools and colleges to provide opportunities for young people to gain knowledge and experience of different roles and raise awareness of career options and job opportunities within the NHS.

There are over 350 potential career options in healthcare and opportunities for work experience include clinical and administrative areas, allowing participants to learn about working in the NHS, develop new skills, learn about their strengths and weaknesses and increase their confidence.

Learning and Development organise various opportunities for young people to gain experience of the NHS and our Trust. These include:

  • Tours of departments.
  • Careers events.
  • Work shadowing.
  • Taster/observation days.
  • Mock interviews and work experience programmes, including traineeships and sector-based academy learners.
