Health and Social Care Ambassador programme
I’m from a school, college or educational setting
Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire health and social care organisations have launched an ambassador scheme to help connect staff with schools to give talks about the wide and stimulating range of careers across health and social care. The aim is to inspire the next generation of nurses, carers, physios, IT professionals, engineers, advocacy workers, occupational therapists and more than 100 other careers.
The Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Health and Social Care Ambassador Programme has a range of professionals able to come to schools to talk about a career in health and social care – including both clinical and non-clinical roles in the community, hospital or care homes.
By talking about their job and career history, staff will help to illustrate the connection between what students are studying in the classroom and the potential job opportunities available in health and social care. It is also an opportunity to highlight the role science, technology, engineering and maths subjects have for some professional careers in the NHS.
At the sessions, staff will talk about about the disciplines that they work in and what choices and qualifications led them to that career path. They will also share stories about what they enjoy about their role and memories of their careers so far.
