Work experience

Barts Health is committed to maintaining links with local schools and colleges.

As part of this process we invite local schools from Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Newham to partake in our east London Health Careers project and various other careers programmes.

Find out about our:

NHS Careers Taster Programme (Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel) 2017

This 3 day programme will give you the opportunity to learn about many of the exciting careers open to you in the NHS and give you an insight into some of the less known professions. We hope the programme will give our local students a better understanding and help them make informed career choices.

Our spaces are very limited and we will be selecting students carefully to ensure we are giving this opportunity to the most dedicated future Health professionals.
The programme is open to students with an interest in pursuing a health career who are currently in year 11, 12 & 13.

A list of schools participating in our Health Careers Programme is available on our website and students from these schools will be given priority during the selection process.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 12th July 2017. Any applications submitted after this date will not be accepted. Please click here to download the application form.

The programme will take place from Monday 24th July for 3 days. You will get the opportunity to hear from our medical professionals and have hands on day at our medical simulation suite. This will give you the opportunity to experience what it is like to be in a real life scenario and what our Health professionals do on a daily basis.

24th & 28th July – Career talks and a range of workshops

25th or 26th July – Simulation day (Depending on your allocated group)

You must attend all 3 days to successfully complete the programme.

East London Health Careers project

Please note: the number of participating schools is limited.

Any schools from the stated boroughs interested in the project should email: for more information.

As part of the project we are happy to offer work experience placements to students aged 14-16 in non-clinical areas and students aged 16 and above in both clinical and non-clinical settings. The aim of the placement is to introduce students to working in a healthcare environment, to give them insight into a variety of career opportunities within the NHS and help students make more informed career choices.

Due to high demand we are no longer in a position to offer work experience to individuals and we will not be able to accept or respond to individual requests. Only applications made by the participating schools will be accepted.
