Talent for Care & Widening Participation

Health Education England have created two strategic Frameworks known as Talent for Care and Widening Participation: it matters  that aim to improve the quality of patient care in a system that faces a challenging future.

The Talent for Care framework has three main areas for action:
• Get in - improving opportunities for people to start their career in a support role
• Get on - supporting people to be the best that they can be in the job they do
• Go further - providing opportunities for career progression, including into the registered professions.

Making the best use of apprenticeships is at the heart of the Talent for Care strategic intentions. The benefits of using apprenticeships to develop existing staff and enable young people to start their careers within the NHS have been widely recognised by practices across the county.

The Health Ambassadors East

The Health Ambassadors East project aims to bring healthcare professionals together with young people to talk about job opportunities within healthcare. This is achieved in a number of ways:

• NHS organisations holding open days, careers events, work experience programmes, work shadowing and volunteer placements
• Connecting education and healthcare professionals in order that young people gain an insight into the world of work
