New Health curriculum for 2020
South Bank UTC is excited to announce its new health curriculum, starting in September 2020. It has been created with industry partners including Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and Kings College NHS Foundation Trust to ensure students get real world experience and skills to prepare them for future employment. Students will receive a specialist education alongside traditional A-levels or BTECs, with opportunities for placements, workshops and work experience in real hospital settings.
We offer opportunities that traditional schools can’t
Their are 350 different NHS jobs, from Doctors, Nurses and Midwives to Physios, Educators, Engineers and technicians. Our Health curriculum is designed to set students up with the expertise and knowledge needed to pursue their dream career and make a real difference to the world. Students study science-based A-Levels or a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care, giving them a range of transferable skills that can be used in work or further study.
‘This unique partnership with South Bank UTC enables us to educate local young people about the wealth of both clinical and non-clinical careers available within our organisation, particularly where we have skills shortages, for example IT Support, Therapeutic Radiography or Healthcare Science. We look forward to engaging with the young people and welcoming them onto our future workforce, whether that is as university students, apprentices or directly into jobs.” – Julie Screaton, (Chief People Officer, Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation trust)
