Work experience placements available now
Careers at Joined Up Care Derbyshire has partnered up with Community Chesterfield, based at the University of Derby in Chesterfield, to enrich the learning experience of health and social care students by providing a range of meaningful work experience opportunities.
The opportunities are aimed at those studying health and social care courses in Derbyshire and surrounding areas to complement their academic studies. This all helps provide another way of learning outside of the classroom, giving valuable experience and knowledge of working in environments aimed at supporting healthy communities.
The benefits of providing students with real experience of working in community settings is hugely valuable to anyone interested in a career in health and social care which explores the wonderful and varied roles within the sector.
A range of opportunities are available to age 17-plus across the voluntary and community sector including placements supporting children and young people with disabilities, day centre placements providing activities for people with dementia and organising activities for people with health conditions.
