Explorative Health and Social Care Taster Day

Date / Time

17 May 2024, 9:30am - 2:15pm


Oxstalls Campus





Year 12 or equivalent are invited to join academics from a range of Health and Social Care based subjects to explore the courses and careers available for students interested in pursuing a future in health and social care.

Each student will be able to experience two taster sessions across a wide range of subjects in health and social care, aimed at broadening their understanding of the profession.

Students should select their preferred talk combinations. Each student will experience two different subject workshops – these are first come, first served and subject to capacity restrictions.

Workshops may involve using specialist simulation equipment, being in our virtual ward and getting ‘hands on’ with learning.
