Welcome to our first online Careers of the Month.
This month we are focusing on careers within the British health system, the National Health Service (NHS) and all of the careers that are contained within one institution.
We aim to provide you with up to date information from these sectors which includes entry levels and qualifications, career progression as well as information on what the role involves. All information has been obtained from sector area publications, either on the web or as a hard copy.
We have used the information from their website https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/ to briefly introduce below, the 14 categories or areas of work within the NHS. Use the link above to access the main website and then click on explore roles tab to select an area you might be interested in to see further information which includes videos and summaries of frequently asked questions and under career planning there is advice on how you can access and fund a career in the NHS.
There are also apprenticeships available for many of the roles within the NHS and there is a dedicated page that provides up to date information about apprenticeships offered by the NHS: https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/career-planning/study-and-Training/apprenticeships-traineeships-and-cadet-schemes
