Health & Sciences Event

For our Health & Sciences Event, the plan is for employers to deliver a series of talks to groups of students, studying Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Health & Social Care, Childcare, Applied Science & Psychology.

The focus of this event is as follows: The NHS is Europe’s largest employer, where there are more than 350 different careers – plus many more in private practice, and employees make a difference every day.

Many work with patients while others work behind the scenes. What they all have in common is that they make a difference to people’s lives. This event will allow learners to explore the vast opportunities within health and social care sectors, healthcare science and childcare, and raise awareness of some of the lesser-known roles available.

  • When?

    Tuesday 30th April, 2024

  • Where?

    The Atrium, Wilberforce Sixth Form College

  • What Time?

    The event will run from 8.45am to 2.30pm each day

  • Information about what your company does.
  • For employers, a talk about a particular job role within your company (linked to the focus of the event).
  • For education providers a talk about how the courses you offer link to a career
  • For any of your employees delivering the talk – a history of their career – what they studied at school, college, university, how this helped them progress into the job they do today.
