Two weeks' virtual work experience with Great Western Hospital

This year, we are giving students in Years 10-13 the unique opportunity to discover what a career in healthcare is like during a two-week Virtual Work Experience programme.

The programme, which takes place 18-29 October 2021, is being run in conjunction with Careers Hub and Study Higher, and will be looking specifically at:

  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Midwifery
  • Clinical Psychology
  • Allied Health Professionals
  • Non-clinical roles

You do not need to be available full-time during these dates, but you do need to be able to complete 10 hours of work over the two weeks.

Currently, face-to-face work experience at a trust is on hold; this will continue to be reviewed in the upcoming months and any updates will be posted here.
