NHS Cadets is a new scheme created in partnership with the NHS providing opportunities to explore roles in healthcare. It is aimed at young people who are from communities currently under-represented within the NHS and St John Ambulance.
The programme offers young people courses to develop their leadership and communication skills, health awareness sessions, and insight into volunteering in the NHS.
The initiative is seeking young people who might not have previously considered a career in healthcare.
The Derbyshire NHS Cadets programme is now open for applications, details of which may be found on the poster below.
