The Health and Social sector is in the top three employment sectors across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, in Sheffield it’s the largest employer – employing over 41,000 people. Covid 19 has been difficult for other industries including travel, tourism, hospitality, and entertainment. For this reason, we think it is more important than ever that our young people know about, aspire to, and are made ready for the full range of careers available in the Health and Social Care sector.

We have forged strong relationships with schools across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw. We have listened to the needs of our Schools and with their help, we have developed a suite of resources to promote and raise awareness of Health and Social Care Careers. 

So #LetsGetReady and prepare a generation for the full range of careers in one of the UK's fastest-growing Job Sectors.
