Health Education England (HEE) has joined forces with charity inspiring the Future to encourage more NHS staff to volunteer as an NHS Ambassador and inspire school children to become the NHS staff of the future.
NHS Ambassadors take part in school activities such as assemblies, speed networking, career days and many more, alongside new Interactive Virtual sessions to connect with children and young people online. Since the campaign began our NHS Ambassadors have interacted with over 400,000 young people through Inspiring the Future.
A new video highlighting the work of NHS Ambassadors is being launched today during Volunteers Week and features passionate NHS staff and volunteers who are inspiring future generations to consider a career in Healthcare. These films can also be used a resource for primary and secondary students to supplement their careers and motivational activities.
Laura Roberts, Director of Skills Development and Participation, Health Education England said:
Health Education England is proud to support this fantastic work. It is important that we give young people an insight into some of the amazing roles the NHS has to offer.
It gives them an opportunity to have a virtual experience with a wide range of role models who do a wide range of interesting jobs.
