Allied Health Professional Online Work-Related Learning
*This programme is on-demand, so if you meet the eligibility criteria you can start right away!*
We have joined forces with Health Education England to bring students an Allied Health Professional online work-related learning programme. The programme will provide an overview of what a career as an allied health professional in one of the 15 different allied health professions can offer, as well as develop key skills for each profession. There's also the opportunity to hear from NHS professionals, learn about their day to day work, as well as about the different areas of the allied health professions and complete assignments.
Upon completion, participants are awarded a certificate, which can be useful for CVs, Personal Statements and interviews. Alongside completing this programme, studying health and social care, social sciences or science subjects are good preparation for a career in health and social care. An awareness of the NHS core values and skills such as compassion, a desire to help and teamwork are also all essential.
