We’re dedicated to Building the next generation of healthcare professionals and ensuring that all young people in East London have access to the same career opportunities, regardless of their background.
The difference we’re making
We are supporting young people throughout their journey to a healthcare career, with initiatives tailored by age group:
- Hands-on events and work experience placements for secondary school students
- Immersive simulations of how an operating theatre works in the cutting-edge simulation suite at The Royal London Hospital for teenagers
- Direct support and advice will be offered for students completing applications for university
- Motivational training, interview skills development and regular events showcasing the range of available opportunities for young people getting straight into work
