Inspiring the Future

Careers talks and activities

As part of the NHS 70th birthday celebrations, NHS England, NHS Improvement and Health Education England have teamed up with Inspiring the Future to get more NHS staff into schools on a regular basis talking about the breadth of interesting roles available and encouraging school children of all ages to consider a career in the NHS.

NHS staff will help to illustrate the connection between what students are studying in the classroom and the potential job opportunities available in the NHS.  It is also an opportunity to highlight the role science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects have for some professional careers in the NHS.

You can hear about the experience of NHS staff that have participated in an Inspiring the Future schools talk via the links below:
