A Career in Health Care
In May 2019 Sheffield Hallam University, in partnership with Rotherham Hospital, organised and delivered the ‘A Career in Healthcare’ event at the Rotherham Hospital Education Centre.
The aim of the event was to inspire and educate school/college students, members of the community and the current workforce around the vast selection of Health and Social Care courses and career paths.
The guests worked their way around an interactive exhibition space where they got to meet academics from SHU and clinical professionals from the Rotherham Trust who showcased their profession to the students using interactive equipment and personal insight into their career and the courses to get there.
Overall, the event was a great success, with many prospective students stating they felt more knowledgeable and confident about their options in Health and Social Care.
