What is Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria?
A health and social care careers fair was held at Colne College on 14th November 2018.The event was a great success and showcased the variety of careers across the Health Service including community and acute services, ambulance service and surgical roles. The diversity of health professions was demonstrated and a wide range of organisations attended the day. Education providers exhibited a vast array of courses and training available.
Pupils from schools and colleges from across East Lancashire had real opportunities to have conversations with clinicians and professionals from across the health and social care sectors. The regulated care sector was presented as a viable and rewarding career. Pupils were also able to see that there is a real alternative to attending traditional university degree programmes through schemes such as apprenticeships.
More careers and training events are in planning for 2019.
