Work Experience

Here you will find information about work experience and related learning packages for health and social care across Nottinghamshire.

We have an established centralised approach to work experience across health and care in Nottinghamshire. Work experience placements are a fantastic opportunity to learn all about working in health and care and offer first-hand experience of the world of work. We are trying to meet the demand for placements however we cannot always guarantee a face-to-face opportunity so we also offer you a number of free online learning packages that give some insight.
