Education Transformation

NHS Corporate Citizenship and 'Inspiring young minds'

Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) has always offered work experience for school and college age learners, but in addition, since March 2010 a staff volunteering programme has been in place, designed to help inspire young people and to open their eyes to the career opportunities in healthcare.This not only broadens their horizons but serves to nurture the next generation of NHS staff and gives existing staff the opportunity to mentor and support the learning of these young people, which can be a very rewarding experience.

Empowering Your Ward Managers - Work-based Learning Programme

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Blackpool FT) has worked in collaboration with Lancaster University’s Centre for Training and Development (CETAD), to develop a robust, accredited learning programme for its ward managers, who in the current NHS landscape have had to undertake a range of managerial tasks as well as their normal clinical role. 

Online Student Placement Choose and Book System

Aintree University Hospital NHS Trust has developed an online student placement choose and book system, where students from all disciplines can select and book spoke placements. Placements are available for spokes (one to four weeks) and short visits (from a few hours up to five days). These opportunities supplement their main hub placements and lend themselves to broader learning experiences.

STEMTECH Careers Event

The careers event was held to showcase career opportunities in Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM subjects). The event provided an opportunity to showcase NHS careers in STEM subjects and in particular Apprenticeship opportunities that are being currently advertised in Pharmacy, Healthcare Science, the Ambulance service and Dental Nursing. Opportunities in all these disciplines will be advertised in the next few weeks and the majority of these Apprenticeships are planned to start September 2015.
