Important Notice – Updated 27 May 2020
Work experience and shadowing placements at Cambridge University Hospitals
In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) CUH has no alternative but to continue to postpone or cancel any non-essential visits, events, and meetings planned. This means we have to stand down all planned work experience and shadowing opportunities on our site as we also want to reduce as many visitors as we can until the end of December 2020. This will include any visits/events planned by our work opportunities team.
We are extremely sorry that we have had to take this decision as we know the importance of enabling young people to understand about the vast array of careers in the NHS and the world of work. We also know that these events encourage children and young people to consider the NHS as a future employer.
In the meantime we are looking at ways we can support students, working with schools and colleges directly.
We plan to continue with our current range of work experience, insight days and work shadowing as soon as it is possible, and in fact hope to add an additional suite of opportunities; we will be working on these and sharing information with you as soon as it is available.
If you have any queries regarding this communication please do not hesitate to contact the Work Opportunities Team on 01223-250887 or firstname.lastname@example.org
CUH is passionate about equipping young people with valuable careers guidance and expanding access to healthcare career opportunities. Our aim is to help develop skills, confidence, awareness and an understanding of the world of work, especially for students aged 14 – 19 years.
Please note: to support our local community, priority for placements will be given to students who live and study within the Trust’s main catchment area as we have limited places and numerous requests.
