Important Notice – 16 March 2020
“Work experience and shadowing placements at Cambridge University Hospitals
In light of the preparedness across the NHS for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) CUH has no alternative but to postpone or cancel any non-essential visits, events, and meetings due to the additional operational pressures we are experiencing. 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. This will be until this academic year ends in July. This will also include any visits/events planned by our work opportunities team. We appreciate that your organisation may also be considering your own position in light of the coronavirus.
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.
We plan to continue with our current range of work experience, insight days and work shadowing from September 2020 onwards, and in fact hope to add an additional suite of opportunities; we will be working on these and sharing information with you by July 2020 so that you can plan accordingly for the September 2020 – July 2021 academic term
If you have any queries regarding this communication please do not hesitate to contact the Work Opportunities Team on 01223-250887”
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.
