Inspiring the future
NHS70 Inspiring the Future scheme
As part of initiatives to celebrate the NHS’s 70th birthday this year, NHS England, NHS Improvement and Health Education England have teamed up with the charity ‘Inspiring the Future’ to help get NHS staff into schools to talk about the their role and to encourage school children of all ages to consider careers in the NHS.
The plan is for these NHS staff talks to illustrate the connection between what students are studying in the classroom and the range of 350+ professions in the NHS. It’s also an opportunity to highlight the role science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects have for some professional careers in the NHS.
Information for Schools:
If you are a teacher and would like to invite local NHS Ambassadors to come in to your school or college to talk to your students, you will need to be registered with Inspiring the Future. You can sign up here.
Once registered, please log in to your Inspiring the Future or Primary Futures account. You can then search for volunteers local to your school using our interactive maps and filter using the sector ‘Healthcare’.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
