In June 2023, Amanda Pritchard the NHS Chief Executive noted that “Inaction in the face of demographic change is forecast to leave us with a shortfall of between 260,000 and 360,000 staff by 2036/37”. This highlights the increasing need for future workforce planning and the importance of engaging with those that will be entering the workforce in the next 10 years.
Our Health & Care Pathways programme seeks to address this issue by engaging young people at secondary school level before they make key decisions about their future study and potential routes in careers. Our work raises awareness of the variety of different careers within health and care, with a particular focus on:
Young people aged 10-18 years old who may not be aware of the opportunities available in the health and care sector
A year-long programme of activities in the health and care sector
The Health & Care Pathways programme involves a year-round programme of exciting careers and skills activities such as careers panels, workshops, live briefs and events.
The programme includes a mix of in-person activities and digital resources to reach as many young people as possible and showcase the variety of different careers that support the NHS and our health and care system.
