Work Experience

UHCW supports a range of experiences in the workplace for school, college and university students who want to gain an insight into careers within the NHS or need to spend some time in a relevant department as part of their studies.

Placements in the Trust are from one day to a week, providing there is availability. We will try our best to match your requirements to the placements which we offer but this will not be guaranteed. Please note that some departments do have age restrictions.

We require a minimum of eight weeks notice to arrange a placement.

UHCW also has a team of NHS professionals, our NHS Ambassadors, who are able to go into schools to help support the national curriculum. NHS Ambassadors also attend school and college career fairs.

Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust, George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust, South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust are working in partnership offering work experience placements for school and college students over the age of 16 and members of the public who may be seeking a change in their career.
