Work Experience

As one of the largest employers in the area, the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust acknowledges its social responsibility to engage with young people and students within the local community by offering work related learning opportunities.

We are committed to providing work experience placements for students to assist them in developing an understanding of working life in a health care setting.

Work Experience Programmes

Due to the outbreak of COVID- 19, the Trust has decided to put all face-to-face work experience programmes on hold and will continue to review the Government guidelines.

We are currently developing a programme of online career information and virtual work experience opportunities. More information on the programmes we will be able to offer will be available in due course.

Please follow our social media pages for the latest updates on Careers and Work Experience.

This is a new programme of virtual work experience opportunities for Year 10 students and Year 12/13 students.  Details of how and when to apply are coming soon.

Pathology Summer School

We run a Pathology Summer School annually in July. Details of how to apply will be sent to the sixth forms and colleges as well as being advertised on our social media accounts
