'Step into the NHS' programme

‘Step into the NHS’ is a 4 to 5 day programme that runs twice yearly in partnership with BHR Hospitals. The programme combines observational placements with classroom based workshops for over 16’s.

This will allow you to make an informed decision about pursuing a career within the NHS

The workshops include topics such as:

  • career pathways into the NHS

  • interview skills

The next workshop will be 22 - 25 October
