Work Experience

Work Experience – Building Careers

The HealthTec programme offers high-quality ‘simulated’ work experience; allowing students to work alongside sector experts using all the relevant technology used on a daily basis in the workplace.

HealthTec is the hub for work experience placements in the NHS Trusts across the West Midlands and Solihull area. The Work Experience (WE) Portal helps young people to decide which area their interests and grades would make them suitable for and directs each interested individual towards current opportunities, guiding them into the application process.

The HealthTec programme supports making work experience more accessible to all. The Passport to Health raises learners’ awareness of the core attitudinal and professional competencies required in the Health sector and guides individuals on how to meet these. A fully completed Passport to Health (online by students in conjunction with HealthTec) is recognised and credited by NHS Trusts and hospitals as a key advantage for any students looking to gain work experience and future employment with them.

"These are just a few of the professions and job areas which students will gain a practical hands-on insight to during their work-related learning experience week"
