National Allied Health Professions Day
On Friday 14th October, Scott students had an online talk from Speakers for Schools. Students heard from different members of NHS staff within Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Health and Care Partnership, promoting the Allied Health roles, which coincided with National Allied Health Professions Day.
The students heard all about the different career paths that are open to them through the apprenticeship route within Allied Health Professions.
They talked about progression routes from starting as a Level 3 Senior Healthcare Assistant and having the opportunity to gain a degree apprenticeship from a wide range of different occupations, including; Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, Operating Department Practitioner, Speech and Language Therapist, Podiatrist, Therapeutic Radiographer, Diagnostic Radiographer, Prosthetist and Orthotist, Dietician.
They also heard talks from;
- Stacey - Dietetic Support Worker
- Ellie - Dietetic and Speech and Language Support Worker
- Steph - Operating Department Practitioner
It was a really informative talk with students learning more about career pathways options after school.
It is vital that students are given as many opportunities as possible to make the best career decisions possible. We are pleased to work with so many fantastic links and look forward to holding more online talks in the future.
