The Young Ambulance Citizens Programme
Fancy a career working in the emergency services and in particular with the ambulance service? Your School or College can arrange participation in our young Ambulance Citizens Programme so that you can get a taste of ‘a day in the life’ within our Ambulance Service.
Here is what it entails:
Our Enhanced Simulation Suite in Newbury, Berkshire is a fully interactive and highly immersive training centre, where you and your fellow students will use hands-on experiences in true-to-life settings with real-life clinical equipment, state-of-the-art manikin technology (life-like manikins that breathe and speak), and actors serving as simulated patients.
The amazing scenarios are very educational and will allow you to discover first-hand what it’s like to work in the ambulance service and will entail the following:
- Road Accident Scene management
- Managing a child /older person with breathing difficulties
- Knife crime incident
- A Care and Compassion incident
- Ambulance Dispatch.
This is a programme we run for schools and colleges (Year 10+) in our communities. For further information please ask your school or college to email email@example.com
Not sure about what career path to choose? Worried about what to do when you finish school? Then get some work experience with us via your secondary school or college
We are pleased to advise that we do offer work experience placements for students aged 15+ (Must be year 11 plus) Currently these placements are only available from our Education Simulation Centre based in Newbury, Berkshire.
We have designed our placement to widen your knowledge and understanding of our Trust, this is not an operational station, whilst you may meet some of our Paramedic’s you will not be exposed to any front line duties.
The placement that we have designed showcases the Educational training elements that our staff undergo during their career with us and the technology we use to support this.
We currently offer a week placement this is normally from Monday to Friday and working hours are usually 08.30 – 16.30.
If this sounds of interest to you and you would like to apply for a placement with us, please do let us know and we will send you the application form by return. For further information please email Work.Experience@scas.nhs.uk
