School and College visits

Some of our clinical and educational professionals have many years experience working with local schools and colleges within the region.

We can come to your school or college and speak to the students from a careers awareness view, giving experienced insight from the wide ranging health care professions that work within the health service.

Since the opening of our Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre in 2012 we have been able to offer on-site careers exposure for groups of up to 30 students in our School experience days. The format of the day has allowed us to create a diverse half day of practical activity and discussion for the student.

Group sessions are lead by registered health care professionals from the wide and varied professions that make up the hospitals staff.  Below is an example programme that has proved popular.

09:30 – 09:45am Introduction – career options in the NHS

"I enjoyed the resuscitation workshop the most. We were involved and the role play was very realistic, fun and interesting. Despite initial embarrassment I was glad I got involved." Student, St Joseph's RC Comprehensive.
