Step into the NHS schools' competition

The Step into the NHS schools’ competition offers students in years 8 and 9 to learn about the range of NHS careers and win some great prizes!

The competition supports the non-statutory framework for careers education, has strong links to the curricula for PSHE, citizenship and English, and raises awareness of the breadth of careers available in health.

What's it all about?

There’s much more to working for the NHS than being a doctor or nurse. In fact there are more than 350 different careers in the NHS and, with that many careers on offer, there’s a job to suit anyone, no matter what your interests and skills are. That is where the Step into the NHS schools competition comes in.

The competition also offers students in years 8 and 9 the chance to win a trip to a science museum for their class and Amazon vouchers!

How to get involved

We want students to choose an NHS career that interests them and to create a job description and an advert to tell their friends and other young people about it. Students can work on their own or in teams of up to four.
Our video tells you all about it.
