Virtual NHS Work Experience Event
During October half term a selection of our year 12 and 13 students participated in a NHS Virtual Work Experience Event. This included a one-day introduction to midwifery, an insight into a career in medicine, and an introduction into Allied Health Professions (including paramedics, physiotherapy, occupational therapy). The virtual one-day opportunities were designed to provide some of the most important points students might have learnt in real-world work experience in the NHS. Over the course of the day students heard talks from a range of professionals and academics and gave students the opportunity to interact live and ask questions, and meet like-minded students.
“I thought it was very informative as there were multiple representatives from different areas of the healthcare sector so gave a lot of information on careers within each section. It was also interactive and working in smaller groups for activities helped to get students more involved.” George Moore Year 13
“I found it useful as there were a variety of speakers that gave an insight into their field in work in very different ways, this helped me work out what sectors I personally want to go into and the benefits and disadvantages of each.” Samuel Kaplan Year 13
