Teacher resources

The resources allow your students to explore a wide range of careers and help them better understand there is an NHS career for them, no matter their interests and skills. See how our ready-made lesson plans and resources can help you meet the Gatsby benchmarks for Good Career Guidance.

Enter the national competition

The teacher resources are made up of four parts, with the finale being an exciting competition for students to create a advert for a NHS career that interests them.

To enter, students need to create a job description and advert to tell their friends about it. This is a national competition where your students could win a class trip and Amazon vouchers.
