Exploring Health Careers Event – 20th October 2018
Calling all secondary schools in Lancashire: we have a fantastic opportunity for Year 10 and Year 11 students! We would like to invite your Y10 and Y11 students (who fulfil ‘Widening Participation’ criteria) to apply for a place on our Exploring Health Careers Event on Saturday 20th October 2018.
University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust are working in collaboration with higher education institutions across Lancashire to deliver this interactive and inspiring event. The aim is to raise awareness of health-related education courses and careers. This event will allow learners and their families to:
- Gain ‘behind the scenes’ access to hospital departments
- Explore a patient’s journey
- Meet healthcare professionals and current university students
- Take part in practical sessions
- Find out about qualifications and courses in local colleges and universities.
Places are limited to 60 for students across Lancashire and the places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Students are able to bring a guest with them to the event; this can be a parent, sibling (aged 18 years or over), carer or teacher. Lunch and refreshments will be provided for all participants, and transport support can be arranged for students if required.

Careers & Engagement Hub win Health Heroes Award
The Careers & Engagement Hub have won the Bay Health & Care Partners – Transformational Change Award at the 2017/18 Health Heroes awards ceremony! This award recognises the impact that the Hub’s projects are having across North Lancashire and South Cumbria; in particular the pre-employment programmes that the team have been running in order to support unemployed adults into jobs in the health and care sectors.
Vicky Lumley, Careers and Engagement Lead for the Careers and Engagement Hub, said: “We were so excited and surprised to find out that we had been nominated for one of the Health Heroes Awards! To win the Transformational Change Award means so much to us; it feels amazing to gain recognition for the work that we are doing and to know that it is making a difference.”
