Celebrating 75 years of the NHS at the Skills and Careers Fair in North East Lincolnshire

Alongside 60 exhibitors, ambassadors from The Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust and Care Plus Group attracted and inspired young people to pursue a career in health and care.  

A wide range of roles were showcased, enabling the students to make informed decisions regarding their future careers and discover the skills they will need.

1,600 Year 10 students from 15 schools attended the Fair, which allowed for the opportunity to speak face-to-face and helped them to unlock their ambition and find a role that suited them.  

This year’s Skills Fair theme was ‘Have a go’, where exhibitors were asked to make their exhibition display interactive. Using virtual reality headsets, students could understand what working in a health and care environment involves. The technology means roles in the sector can be brought to life, allowing users to explore different scenarios and the work they could do.  

Tina Jenkinson, Careers and Employability Manager at Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, said: “Events like this are the perfect way for students in North East Lincolnshire to find out about a potential future career in health and care.

“Careers events help us identify those with the talent and skills to succeed, support them to achieve their potential and make a real difference in their community.

“I encourage anyone interested in a career in health and care to explore all of the opportunities on our website.”
