Medical Professions NHS Cadetship - Level 3 Triple Diploma
Course Code: SE1FE377
Prepare for degree-level study and/or a career in the allied health professions with our exciting two-year NHS cadetship.
This is an exciting opportunity to gain first-hand experience of working in a health setting, with class-based study supported by about 400 hours’ work experience in the NHS.
At B&FC our industry specialist tutors will deepen your understanding of key health and social care topics and help you to develop your academic skills.
This course allows you to gain the maximum 168 UCAS points needed for degree-level study - and careers in health and social care, nursing, midwifery, paramedic science, operating department practice and social work.
- To do this course you will need 4 GCSEs, including grade 4 or above in English and Maths. A level 2 health and social care qualification is beneficial - but not essential.
- You will also need to have a clear DBS (criminal records check) as this is a requirement for your work placement.
If you have a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. This won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.
In September you will need to attend a week-long work programme with Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This will give you a great opportunity to experience early in the course what a Cadetship is all about.
All 16-18 year old applicants will be invited to attend an interview to meet a tutor and ask any questions they may have about the course.
