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 is being run in conjunction with Careers Hub and Study Higher, will be looking specifically at:

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

We are currently planning for a September 2021 co-hort, and details will be published as soon as possible.

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.
