The Step into Health Programme offers service personnel who are in the process of transitioning from service to civilian life, and veterans, the opportunity to gain an understanding of the NHS and the career opportunities it offers. Sunderland and South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust recognised the programme to be an excellent opportunity to meet service personnel, identify their experience, their transferable skills, strong working ethos and values that they bring with them after their experience during their military careers.
We host a series of information sessions which aim to introduce delegates to the NHS, the Trust, CHoICE our facilities provider, specialist services and opportunities available.
After attending one of our information sessions delegates will be given the opportunity to complete a bespoke work experience placement enabling them to identify potential career opportunities and transferrable skills to aid their transition to civilian employment.
