We understand that sometimes people find it difficult to “get in” to a career in health and care. Still, many programmes can enable people to Get Ready, Get In, Get On and Go Further in their journey towards a career across the sector.
There are organisations and charities that are working to make employment more accessible and help people take their first steps on their career journey. Research has shown that employment has many benefits, including:
- Improved self-esteem
- Build your self-confidence
- Improved health and well-being (both mental and physical)
- Social mobility
- Learn new skills
We want the health and care workforce to reflect the communities it looks after.
