Work experience and placements
Work experience bridges the gap between education and the world of work. Work experience can open people’s eyes to new aspirations, help inform career decisions and provides valuable experience to enhance your CV. It introduces you to and instils the attitudes and behaviours expected at work.
Roles in the care and health sector are available for students to experience and observe. However, some areas may not be appropriate as patient care and confidentially are paramount.
Students under the age of 16 are more limited in what they can do. In some organisations, under 16’s are not allowed to be part of the clinical environment.
