Interactive event to inspire our ‘Future Heroes’

Pupils from schools across Hertfordshire are getting ready for an interactive careers event, aimed at inspiring the next generation of health and social care heroes.

The ‘Future Heroes’ Health and Social Care Careers Expo takes place on Tuesday 02 April at the Fielder Centre, Hatfield. Students will meet over 70 professionals, including nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, social workers and radiologists to get an authentic insight into the huge range of career opportunities.

As well as hands-on activities and workshops, students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a virtual reality experience of living with either dementia or autism.

“There are hundreds of rewarding jobs across health and social care. If you’re caring, compassionate and committed there is a role to suit you” said Sheilagh Reavey, Director of Nursing and Quality, NHS East and North Herts Clinical Commissioning Group.

“There’s a real shortage of health and social care professionals across the country, and we need to encourage the next generation to explore the many and varied career opportunities available.”

Limited tickets are still available for the afternoon session from 1pm to 3pm. Schools can book their free tickets at
