Work experience and our future workforce


07 / 02 / 2008

In 2007, NHS Careers launched Step into the NHS – a programme of activity targeting 14–19-year-olds that aims to promote the broad range of careers in the NHS and to encourage individuals to think about joining the NHS team. NHS Careers has also produced a toolkit, Enabling work experience in the NHS, for employers planning to start or increase work experience programmes.

Trusts will find these resources useful in building their own relationships with local schools and colleges. Recruitment and workforce planning is primarily a local issue for each trust. 

This Briefing explains why the onus is on each trust to seize the opportunity that work experience programmes provide.
