Work Experience

Work experience can help you to gain an insight into different career paths, and learn more about what skills and qualifications you need to be successful in a role. It allows you to see and experience the role in real life, enables you to have conversations with people who are currently employed in the role, and make an informed decision about whether a particular career path is right for you. Work experience placements are usually unpaid, and can last anywhere from a couple of days to a full week. A placement can be really useful for people looking to start or change their career in the health and care sector. Typically work experience would be up to 5 consecutive days and consist of shadowing opportunities within a chosen discipline/area.
