September 5, 2022

Heading visual asset

The Integrated Care Systerm for Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire virtual work experience: The Hospital Virtual Work Experience, their most ambitious programme to date, is due to launch on 26 September. Packed full of even more interactive content, including 5 live webinars. The webinar schedule is extensive and we have a range of clinical professionals from the county taking part. Excitingly, this programme will feature a live procedure from Mr Ajith George, an ENT Consultant from UHNM. The procedure will be streamed to students who have applied to the programme on Thursday 29 September.

The long awaited social care programme will follow in November. This will be the first social care specific programme that Springpod have built and the ICS hope it will be well received by local schools and colleges. They hope to encourage academic settings offering health and social care vocational courses to include the programme activities within lesson time.  If this is something your school or college would be interested in exploring further- please get in touch with your Enterprise Coordinator.

As they look into 2023, they plan to relaunch the mental health programme with revamped content and launch a maternity focussed platform in March.

These are excellent opportunities for students across Stoke and Staffs and they are really keen to make sure they reach as many students as possible.

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
