National schools' competition
Our national schools' competition is now underway for 2013/14! There are loads of great prizes to be won, including a netbook computer and Amazon vouchers, so make sure you don't miss the chance to win one of these fantastic prizes!
What you need to do
The competition is open to everyone in years 8 and 9 across England. Students are challenged with picking one of the 350 plus careers in the NHS and, working individually or in groups of up to four, creating a job advertisement and job description for that role.The competition will again include a category for students with special educational needs (SEN) who only need to create a job advertisement for their entry.
Your teachers have all the info
We've sent your careers and English teachers all the information they need to get you started on your competition entry.
There's a CD rom with:
- examples of last year's winning entries
- mocked up job descriptions to guide you
- information sheets
- the entry form.
If for any reason they haven't asked for an information pack yet, your teachers can download all the materials from the NHS Careers website, or order a pack by calling 0345 60 60 655.
Success of the 2012/13 competition
Last year, more than 1660 students got involved and the winning entry was produced by three students from St Catherine's School in Bramley, Guildford who chose to look at the role of physiotherapist for their entry.
