As part of the NHS 70th birthday celebrations, NHS England, NHS Improvement and Health Education England have teamed up with Inspiring the Future to get more NHS staff into schools on a regular basis talking about the breadth of interesting roles available and encouraging school children of all ages to consider a career in the NHS.
NHS staff Health Ambassadors will help illustrate the connection between what students are studying in the classroom and the potential job opportunities available in the NHS. It is also an opportunity to highlight the role science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects have for some professional careers in the NHS.
If you are a teacher and would like to invite local NHS staff Health Ambassadors to come in to your school or college to talk to your students, you will need to be registered with Inspiring the Future. You can sign up here.
Once registered, please log in to your Inspiring the Future or Primary Futures account. You can then search for volunteers local to your school using our interactive maps and filter using the sector ‘Healthcare’.
