Work Experience

Aged 15 or over and interested in gaining valuable experience within the NHS?

A work experience placement at South Tees Hospitals will provide for a great opportunity to learn about work in general and have an insight into NHS careers.

We offer a unique learning experience in many wards and departments which can help influence future decisions regarding the rest of your education and career pathway.

At South Tees you have the opportunity to shadow and observe real work situations, witnessing the importance of teamwork and leadership skills. Students can observe world-class professionals at work and ask questions about their job roles.

We have a large range of placements available in the trust. We can only arrange placements for those aged 15 or over.

Please be aware that some departments have additional age restrictions.
