Step into the NHS schools' competition

We’d like to thank all the schools and students for their entries into the 2016/17 Step into the NHS schools competition. As always, the competition proved to be popular and the judges were very impressed with the standard of the entries! 

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?

The winners have all been informed, and will be announced shortly. 

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’s where the Step into the NHS competition comes in.

The competition also offers students in years 8 and 9 the chance to win a tablet or a £50 Amazon voucher!

How to get involved

The 2016/17 competition is now closed, but in 2017/18 we'll be asking students in years 8 and 9 to choose an NHS career that interests them and 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.
