The aim of my project was to organise a week’s placement to give six BMAT STEM students the opportunity to work alongside different teams within the hospital achieving the following objectives:
- Supporting students in their education by providing work based opportunities to develop their experience and understanding .
Apply their learning and education to the real working environments in the National Health Service (NHS).
- Gain insight about employment opportunities in the NHS by busting the myth that the NHS is just about doctors and nurses.
- For students to work alongside Service Mentors in making informed (evidence based) recommendations for future service improvement and transformation.
- Students to gain knowledge of quality and service improvement in a work based environment.
