Work experience offers an excellent opportunity to see what it is like to work in health and social care, in clinical and non-clinical areas. It can help you find out more about the skills needed for the wide range of roles and provides ideas to start your career or take your next steps.
Our opportunities range from short visits or taster half days up to a week-long placement. Some work experience will be hands-on; others may be observing or shadowing a specific role.
Our wide range of placements are available to anyone, whether you are at school or college, applying for a course or to university, or seeking experience prior to gaining employment or changing careers. We welcome and support applications from people covered by all protected groups in the Equality Act. Some age restrictions may apply to ensure safety, depending on the nature of the work, but this will be shown against the opportunity.
