A Healthy Start to Apprenticeship Week

Just before the start of National Apprenticeship Week, Year 7 students were visited by Natalie Jary and Scarlett Sterne from the NHS Careers Hub at Plymouth Hospital Trust, who came to the College to deliver a Careers in the NHS Assembly. 

During the assembly, students learnt some interesting facts about when the NHS was created, what its values are and how many people it employs in its 350 roles

They learnt about jobs in the NHS that are patient facing and non-patient facing, and the variety of different career pathways on offer in the NHS such as:


T Levels

Supported Internships


After the Year 7 assembly, Natalie then delivered a Workshop and Question and Answer session to a group of interested Year 9 and 10 students, which covered areas including;


Size and scope of roles within the NHS


Career pathways into becoming a qualified Nurse, which include:

Healthcare Assistant
Nursing Associate Apprenticeships

Sixth Form
University Qualifications


Progression routes within Nursing, including the top Nursing role of VSM (Chief Nurse)
