As a Level 3 Health and Social Care student, you may have the opportunity to join the Health Cadets Programme with the East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust (ELHT). This competitive programme includes extensive work experience at all ELHT establishments, alongside practical career related training. Students receive an exciting programme of events, presentations, mentorships and work experience, all aimed at helping you to determine your health-related career path.
The Cadets is a challenging yet rewarding programme, providing excellent routes into professional training for clinical careers, such as radiography, speech and language therapy, nursing, mental health, dietetics or occupational therapy, as well as university. Students will undertake the Skills for Care Certificate (a recognised qualification for employment in the sector) during the programme.
You must also apply for a DBS, which will be covered by the College, dependent on funding requirements.
