Pupils will have a deeper understanding of the role of Allied Health Professionals in the NHS and the skills required to undertake these roles. They will explore how their own learning, skills and interests would apply to these roles and the career pathways available to them.

These online sessions will spotlight careers in three Allied Health Professions over three days:

  • Session One: Orthoptics
  • Session Two: Physiotherapy
  • Session Three: Podiatry

Resources will be shared with teachers for before the sessions and to provide further information for those interested afterwards.

Mentimeter will be used during the sessions to engage with learners so devices for individual or groups of learners is desirable.

Following the initial sessions in November we will be looking to organise some on demand sessions in the new year that fit in with school timetables for those unable to attend.
