Step into the NHS schools' competition

The Step into the NHS schools’ competition offers students in years 8 and 9 the chance to win a tablet or a £50 Amazon voucher!

Resources for the 2016/17 competition are now available to download on the Step into the NHS website

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

How to get involved

We want students 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 new video will tell you all about it.

Resources for the 2016/17 are now available to download on the Step into the NHS website. Printed copies of the packs will be sent to schools in September. Make sure you receive your copy by contacting us, quoting CAR1021.
