Over 8 hours worth of content
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.
The World of the NHS
Have you ever wondered what working for the NHS is really like? It’s a universal healthcare system that is crucial for treating patients and saving lives on a daily basis, but we often don’t fully understand what it’s like! This module will help with that - from introducing you to how the NHS is structured to introducing the core values and beliefs of the NHS, you’ll gain an insight into what it’s like to work in healthcare settings, and how it feels to truly make a difference!

Thank you for all your time and effort. The program was by far the best experience I’ve had virtually compared to other virtual experiences I’ve done. I liked the layout and the interactive activities, and I learnt a lot I didn’t know. I would definitely recommend this program to others; it was a great experience I would love to do it all again.
