The teacher resources are made up of three parts. The finale is an exciting competition to showcase learning and celebrate the NHS. Your students could win Amazon vouchers and a prize for the class.

The resources provide a progressive framework for learning but you won’t need to work through all the materials for your pupils to benefit. It's designed to be flexible so you can create a programme to suit you and your pupils.

All the teacher resources can be downloaded as a Zip file below.

Part 1: Your strengths and the NHS

Pupils explore who they are: what they are good at, what they need help with, their favourite things and what they want to do in the future.

Part 2: Working in the NHS

Pupils explore a wide range of jobs in the NHS through a variety of activities including hearing from a range of NHS staff on video, investigating a vibrant community scene and working with patient stories and job cards.

Part 3: Competition entry

Pupils celebrate what they have learnt by taking part in a fun competition to produce a piece of artwork and/or writing.

Supporting resources

We also have a range of resources to support delivery of the lesson plans and differentiate the learning for all pupils.
