Virtual WEX with Great Western Hospital (Yr 10 - 13, app deadline 15/2, 8th-19th March (10 hours))


Two Weeks Virtual Work Experience with Great Western Hospital


This year, Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are giving students in Years 10-13 the unique opportunity to discover what a career in healthcare is like during a 2 week Virtual Work Experience programme.


The programme will give students an overview of what a career in healthcare can offer, looking specifically at:

  • Medicine

  • Nursing

  • Midwifery

  • Clinical Psychology

  • Allied Health Professionals

  • non-clinical roles.

The programme will take place between 8th March and the 19th March 2021. You do not need to be available full time during those dates but you do need to be able to complete 10 hours of work over the 2 weeks.


Students can apply for the programme by creating a Springpod account and completing the application form here: https://www.springpod.co.uk/great-western-virtual-work-experience/

Eligibility: To apply for this programme students must:

  • Have an interest in a career in healthcare

  • Be in Years 10-13 and attend a school or college within 19 miles of the SN3 6BB (KGA qualifies)

  • Be predicted or have attained Level 4 in GCSE Maths and English

Please note: GWH have confirmed that KGA is in their radius so if you meet the other criteria too you are able to apply.


The deadline for applications is February 15th 2021 and all applicants will hear if they have a place on the programme on the 22nd of February 2021.


There are 150 places available in March. Any unsuccessful applicants will be able to apply for the programme again in the near future. We are currently planning on running a further two cohorts in the first half of this year.
