Joined Up Careers Derbyshire is working in partnership with Springpod to revolutionise the health and social care work experience offer. 

Gaining work experience in health and social care can be challenging - places are limited and age restrictions can often apply, not to mention the extra challenges that come with Covid-19.

By providing interactive, innovative and completely virtual work experience programmes, students will be able to gain insight into different health and social care careers from real people working in Derbyshire.

Programmes include 10 hours of interactive content, including project work, assignments and professional workshops. 

All content is designed to broaden awareness of the hundreds of careers, entry routes and development opportunities that health and social care has to offer. It also provides students with the opportunity to develop key skills, gain real-life experience (albeit via a virtual platform) and is a great addition to the CV.

The health and social care programme is still in development, but watch this space for an exciting and widely accessible alternative to traditional work experience coming to Derbyshire, with the platform hopefully launching in May 2021.
