NHS Support with Careers Activities

Learning | Inspiration | Future | Employment

There are thousands of career opportunities available throughout the health and care sector and the NHS are keen to promote and provide careers advice, guidance and experienced for as many students as possible.

We are delighted to share with you a new referral process to help careers leaders access support from NHS professionals with their careers activities.

All school and college engagement is managed through The Life Centre in Chorley who have a central responsibility for co-ordination and reporting, and if you would like any support from the NHS then you can either contact The Life Centre directly or go through their network of regional representatives.

As well as supporting careers activities in schools, The Life Centre also offers a unique and fantastic virtual learning environment which is completely free to use and accessible to everyone.

LIFE is a facility that has been purpose built to inspire NHS careers and support health and well-being in people aged 5 years and upwards. The facility has been designed to include practical based teaching but also includes state of the art VR and AV technology. The idea is that public funded Education providers and NHS organisations in Lancashire can book the facility to support teaching and learning delivered by them. LIFE staff will ensure the facility is prepared for sessions and can provide teaching session ideas and lesson plans prior to booking.
