HOPE (Health Opportunities and Prospects for Employment)

Thanks to funding from Norfolk’s Armed Forces Community Covenant, the University of East Anglia is offering a four-week employability programme to veterans and civilians who’d like to work in healthcare.

HOPE (Health Opportunities and Prospects for Employment) is an experiential programme that’s tailored to the needs of every participant. There will be a week’s intensive skills mapping, a two-week work placement within Norfolk and a fourth week preparing to apply for employment or further education opportunities.
HOPE will help veterans integrate into local life and build their experience and contacts in the community. Half of the funded places are open to veterans and half to civilian students, who’ve graduated from a Foundation Degree or Access Course in Health Studies. This mix will allow all participants to gain knowledge from different perspectives within an area of mutual interest – healthcare.

The programme runs from 1 to 27 September 2014.

Week one:
Study the changing healthcare environment
Explore your personality, past experience and learning style
Develop leadership skills
Weeks two & three:
Build upon your experience through workplace learning
Week four:
Plan for your future and prepare for employment or education opportunities

Applications close on 12th July 2014.
