Hospital work experience boost for young people

Get Into The NHS, Healthcare & Hospital Services

Briony BarnesThe Get Into programmes offer chances to gain work experience, training, qualifications and employment with CUH and our Health Sector Partners. The programmes run from between 4 and 8 weeks and give real insight into and valuable experience in a wide range of departments and professions.  Briony Barnes is  one of the many success stories from recent Get Into Hospital Services programmes. Briony said, “it was a very hard time being unemployed. I must have applied for 40 jobs a month with no success. I felt so disheartened and it really knocked my confidence.”

She said: “The Trusts Programme has been amazing. Not only do I have a qualification and valid work experience, but I’ve been offered a job at Carillion as a help desk administrator.”

Get Into Programmes take place twice a year at CUH. The next Programme is scheduled to commence in late February 2013. Look out for details on our upcoming events page. You can find out how to participate at Job Centre Plus Cambridge, T - 0845 604 3719 or visit Prince’s Trust Website:
