If it was tricky pre-covid, finding work experience in any health based setting will now be impossible. It'll be tough to organise visitors to your school or even getting them to jump on a zoom call.

That's why we've put everything together in one place for you. We've interviewed so many different careers at all hours of the day, so you and your students can access them in one handy place.
