Raising the profile of AHPs to the Armed Forces

People who have been in the armed forces have a great set of transferable skills that will be a credit to any NHS organisation. Health Education England has spoken to a number of AHPs who have previously worked in the armed forces to develop a suite of video and written case studies to share their real experiences making their step into a career in the NHS.

A Universe of Opportunities

Recognising that the wealth of AHP talent may not always be fully utilised, HEE has created an online AHPs’ Universe of Opportunities careers resource to raise awareness of the vast array of opportunities for AHPs to develop their careers.

Working with the AHP professional bodies, the resource includes eight core areas that AHPs could consider to develop their career, all whilst potentially continuing in clinical practice. It includes insight from AHPs working within these areas, with voices from across all 14 allied health professions – plus useful information and links to resources to demonstrate the art of the possible for AHPs’ career development. .The resource can be accessed on our e-lfh pages.
