Teacher resources

The KS2 resources allow your pupils to explore a wide range of careers and help them better understand that all NHS careers are open to them, whatever their gender or background. See how our ready-made lesson plans and resources can fit into your schemes of work and introduce meaningful career-related learning to your pupils.

Enter the national competition

The teacher resources are made up of three parts, with the finale being an exciting competition to showcase pupil learning and celebrate the NHS. Your pupils have a chance to win a class prize and Amazon vouchers.

To enter, pupils need to create a piece of artwork or creative writing to say "thank you" to the NHS and its staff that shows understanding of NHS careers and challenges gender stereotyping.
