Health & Social Care Virtual Careers Week27th to 29th October 2021

During this week, students across North East London came together to hear local people working in health and social care talk about the vast range of job roles, including some less well known, and career pathways available in the area.  Topics included routes into Apprenticeships, Business and Administration, Allied Health Professions, Medicine and Social Work.  They also shared their top tips on job applications and interview skills – and how they got into their profession.  Students heard two case studies, showing how health and social care work together to support people who use services and the range of roles involved.  The careers workshops are posted on our Spotlight On Videos page.


Allied Health Professions Careers– February 2020

There are 14 allied health profession (AHP) roles and in this broadcast you will find out more about some of these roles.  Local Podiatrists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Speech & Language Therapists from East London and North East London Foundation Trusts talk about how and why they entered their profession and give advice to help you consider and progress a career as an AHP.


A Career in Nursing – June 2019 

If you are looking for a career for life that offers opportunities to work in a team to enhance the lives of others, where no one day is the same as the next, where your people skills are valued as much as your intelligence, nursing could be for you.

Nursing isn’t just about being a nurse in a uniform working in a hospital or on a ward, it can be about supporting people with learning disabilities in their homes, leading ground breaking health research, working in schools, visiting people with mental ill health at home or working in a nursing home or a primary care health centre. Nurses work in all parts of society, from conception to death. The country just wouldn’t run without nurses and we need more nurses to keep people well, to support them in ill health, to promote their recovery and to provide care at the end of life too.

The social care sector is a growing employment sector with hundreds of employers. The number of jobs in care are increasing with lots of job vacancies and many different roles to choose from.  Some of the roles you may not have heard of or associate with social care.

They will also introduce you to other roles which you may not have thought about but are also just as important in the care sector.
