Work experience

The purpose of a work experience placement is to help individuals decide on career options. Work experience is not reserved for young people, we invite applications from anyone wishing to explore alternative career options.

The areas and programme of work experience will be determined in relation to the likely career pathway of the students and will take into account age, academic record, interests and chosen academic pathway.

Which programme to apply for?

Separate programmes are run for medical and non-medical work experience with different application forms and application processes. Please read carefully the information on both the medical and non-medical work experience pages. Medical work experience is only available to students over 16 years old and a minimum age restriction of 17 is applied to Accident and Emergency, Theatres and The Children’s and Maternity Units. Placements are not offered in the mortuary.

We are also happy to consider work experience requests from students undertaking a course not directly related to healthcare. For example, the video below shows a group of Year 2 media students from Craven College filming with our therapy teams.

The videos they created for us are as follows:
