The NHS is one of the largest employers in the world, and the biggest in Europe with over 1.3 million staff. Along with many partners in the community it supports a growing and ageing population.
But a younger, more diverse workforce is needed to help sustain the NHS, which is why we're set to train thousands of young people like you with the skills and confidence you need to move into health and social care jobs, as well as receive mentoring to develop your careers. All, with the support of our brilliant network of partners.
Whatever type of job you're looking for, it's within the health and social care industry. If you're keen to develop 'on-the-job' training to find a job that suits you, get in touch to find out about free local courses running in your area:
