Students are challenged to research and choose an NHS career that interests them. Once chosen, they create materials to promote it, starting with a job description to capture key responsibilities, along with any qualifications, skills and experience needed.
This learning is then used to create a fun and lively job advert to appeal to their peers. Students can enter individually or in teams of up to four.
Entries must be received no later than Friday 30 April 2021.
