Virtual Work Experience Opportunities – Western Health & Social Care Trust

WHSCT logo-340

School Employer Connections together with programme partners Speakers for Schools are pleased to announce details of new virtual opportunities provided by the Western Health & Social Care Trust.

Within the WHSCT all “face to face” work experience opportunities, placements, workshops and open days for post-primary and Further Education College students are currently postponed.

Student Registration

Young people can apply for these opportunities by signing up and registering on the SfS Student Portal.

Students are invited to register for these SEVEN opportunities, but as available places are limited, and as the anticipated level of interest will be high, student registrations will be accepted on a “first come first served” basis. Enhanced criteria may be applied if the volume of applications exceed availability.

Please note that the closing dates in the adverts on website are incorrect. The correct date is shown in table below.
