In order to increase awareness of Allied Health Profession (AHP) careers in school aged children, Health Education England have worked in partnership with the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) and Forum Talent Potential to fund and support a project which provides real life context to learning.

The aim of the project was to support teachers in primary and secondary schools to develop curriculum projects that integrate AHP careers learning into the curriculum.  This was achieved by:

- Using subject curriculum requirements as the driver, and AHPs as the underpinning context.  

- Teachers and AHPs co-creating curriculum content to enable children to connect what they are studying in the classroom to the world of work.

In order to bring the learning to life, a six step approach was used.  The online toolkit that details the approach is free, and can be accessed by teachers and employers here

The project has produced exemplar case studies that every school in the country can use, which can be found on the Forum Talent Potential website.  These case studies show the innovative, exciting and engaging ways in which Allied Health Careers can be integrated into the delivery of curriculum objectives.

The benefits of this approach extend to the students, the school and the profession or employer.

A KS3 English Teacher, about a ‘speaking and listening’ task to encourage children to comply with treatment for an eye condition “Having a real life problem to solve helped the students to engage in the task.  At the time of the project, the NHS was at the forefront of students’ minds….which added to the student engagement”
