Please Note: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to offer any work experience placements for the 2020/21 academic year.

Work experience within Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is open to two specific groups of students:

School Students

Work experience is available to all students in Years 10, 12 and 13 as part of their schools formal work experience programme. To ensure a fair distribution of placements across all schools and colleges in Hull and the East Riding, our placements are administered by Hull City Council (HCC) and students should not apply directly to the Trust. In the first instance, interested students should speak to whomever manages work placements within their educational establishment.

As students under the age of 17 are unable to attend any placements within clinical areas, Year 10 Work Experience placements are mostly within Administration positions throughout the Trust.

Further Education

The second type of placement we offer is to further education students when it is a recognised requirement of their course. We currently work with several Colleges, 6th Forms and academies in Hull and East Riding – mostly with Level 3 programmes, such as BTEC National in Health Studies. Administration of these placements is provided by Hull City Council and students should not apply directly to the Trust.

Unfortunately the Trust cannot accept ad-hoc requests for Work Experience.

Prior to the start of the placement, each student is screened by our Occupational Health Department and is then sent a formal offer of placement letter. For Further Education Students, as they will attend extended placements, they are also required to provide a valid Criminal Records Bureau Certificate.

On starting their placements within the Trust, students are given a full induction and are made aware of all Health and Safety and Fire Regulations for the department in which they are working.
