To help explore the routes to becoming a nurse and the array of opportunities available, Healthier Together will be running a virtual work experience week, this July, for school and college leavers from across Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire.

Five live webinars will be hosted each morning from Monday 5 to Friday 9 July (10.0011.00 each time), to cover the following topics:

Career pathways in health and social care | Monday 5 July

“You have to want to be a doctor or a nurse to work in health and care, right? Wrong! There are over 350 jobs in our sector. We show you the huge variety of career pathways — and what you can do straight out of school or college.”

Day in the life of a care worker and nurse | Tuesday 6 July

What’s a typical day like? Join our webinar to hear a care worker, a nurse, a nursing assistant, and a nurse apprentice talk about their lives at work and the highs and lows of their jobs. There’ll be a chance for you to ask questions, too.”

Patient care and the 6 'Cs' of communication | Wednesday 7 July

What does it take to care for people for a living? And how do our communication skills make all the difference to the way someone feels? By the end of this session, you’ll find that communication is so much more than the words we say.”

Simulation time! Five health and care situations re-enacted | Thursday 8 July

“What would you do? We share five simulations, including a response to someone having a cardiac arrest in the street and a situation in an emergency department. We talk through the decisions taken at every stage — and their consequences.”

What next? Tips on where to apply and how to shine | Friday 9 July

“Where are jobs advertised? What job titles do I search for? How do I make my application stand out? What preparation should I do for the interview? We explain the recruitment process, plus our tips on how to stand out from the crowd.”
