The Prince’s Trust working with local NHS to give Rotherham’s unemployed youth an experience of working in the NHS

02 Mar 2015 15:45:29

 Up to 16 unemployed young people from Rotherham are being sought to be part of a training programme to gain hands-on experience of working in the NHS and support to find a job.

A six week training course, which starts in April 2015, has been arranged by youth charity The Prince's Trust and The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust working with Dearne Valley College to offer unemployed young people aged 16-25 real hands-on practical training and vocational knowledge.

Those who successfully complete the training will be considered for vacancies across the Trust’s community and hospital services and given the opportunity to gain qualifications such as NVQs in Hospital Services. Once they have completed the training, individuals will receive a further six month’s support after the programme to help them find a job.

Potential applicants must be unemployed and interested in a career within the NHS. Over the six weeks they will need to demonstrate that they can learn new skills and work as part of a team.

Over the six weeks they will:

• gain practical work experience in the Domestics department, with potential experience to be gained in Admin and Portering departments
• have the chance to gain training in Information Governance, Infection Prevention and Control, Conflict Resolution, Manual Handling, working with people with Dementia
• improve their teamwork and communication skills and boost their confidence, interview skills and give them real experience to share on their CVs.

The young people will all be Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked as part of the programme and will always have an appropriate member of staff training and supervising them.

Anyone fitting the criteria wanting to register their interest or wanting more information should contact Les Smith on 07506 711643 or email leslie.smith@princes-trust.org.uk . Those selected will be required to attend a pre-programme Taster Day on Tuesday 31 March at Rotherham Hospital.
