Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland health and social care are looking forward to welcoming physical work experience placements back very soon as and when it is safe to do so. Our environments should be COVID safe risk assessed to support our staff, patients and visitors. Students may also find that the rules on masks and social distancing don’t mirror those of their education establishment or everyday life (i.e. as we have vulnerable patients in health and social care establishments it is expected that social distancing and mask wearing will continue for the foreseeable future).

We are also looking forward to our health and social care ambassadors visiting face to face events in the community where the service allows in the near future. In addition to this we will be organising 3 virtual career events for schools and colleges to connect with in the new school term. The dates for these, and how to register your interest, will be announced for the new academic year shortly. It is hoped that later in the academic year we can welcome you through our doors to a health and social career event also – watch this space for details.
