Whether you are looking to embark on your first career or it’s time for a new challenge, come along to find out more about the role of a therapeutic radiographer, the department and the clinical placements available.

Melanie Clarkson, placement learning tutor said: “Therapeutic radiographers help improve the lives of cancer patients every day. It’s an exciting and varied career which combines technical expertise with high standards of patient care.

“If you are caring, have good communication skills, have excellent team working skills and want to make a positive impact on a patient’s cancer journey, then perhaps this is the career for you.

“Earnings after completion of our course start at £22,000 and for the past 11 years 100% of our students have gone on to employment.

“We have radiotherapy clinical placements through Sheffield Hallam University at The James Cook University Hospital so you can get the best of both worlds by having the student experience in Sheffield and then coming home for clinical placement!”

Students need a minimum of 112 points at A Level (including a science) or equivalent qualifications to qualify for the course.
