Event Overview

The area of health and social care careers can be extremely broad, and often difficult to navigate. With over 1.4 million people currently employed in the NHS 1, and a further 1.6 million by social care services2 across the nation, the need for qualified staff and professionals is set to rise in the coming years.

But which careers require a degree? And how can you go about finding the right route for you? What's the difference between a University-based degree and an Apprenticeship? What if I already have a degree?

We'll discuss these questions and many more in this short 25 minute session, with plenty of time for audience questions.
