Shrewsbury Colleges partner with NHS

Shrewsbury Colleges Group (SCG) and Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) recently announced plans to form a partnership. The College has become the first in the country to offer a dedicated programme of career support focusing on the breadth of roles within the NHS, the county’s largest employer. Selected full-time academic, vocational courses and apprenticeships will offer specific NHS-related elements as well as career planning, placements and mentoring to equip students with the skills and behaviours required to work in a wide variety of roles across the NHS.

SCG’s Catherine Armstrong explains, “We’re really excited about partnering with the NHS and the fantastic opportunities it will give our young people as they approach the world of work. The selected courses and apprenticeships will be structured to incorporate relevant content and supported by specialist mentoring, to skill future employees, aid progression and enhance job opportunities.”

Victoria Maher of SaTH adds, “The NHS can offer a wide variety of career options including the well-recognised clinical roles, doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, and so on. There are also roles in administration, management, finance, engineering, catering and many more.”
