Work Experience and Healthcare Careers Support

At Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust, we’re proud to offer work experience placements, providing unique opportunities for mentees to gain an insight into community healthcare professions in the NHS. We want to support young people and adult learners to explore career choices in healthcare and help build the knowledge and skill sets of our future NHS workforce. 

Placements are provided on a first come, first serve basis and must be applied for using our application form. You should tell us why you are applying and if you are interested in a particular healthcare profession or role so that we can ensure we match you with the correct team. We have lots of teams offering spaces within our community trust, examples include:

  • Dentistry1000034057.jpg
  • Nursing (rehabilitation wards)
  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Orthoptics
  • Care Homes
  • Dietetics
  • Business Support
  • Quality Improvement

Who can apply for work experience?

Anyone aged 14+ can apply for work experience with us. To be eligible for a placement, mentee’s must be living, or studying, in the boroughs in which CLCH services are delivered. This criteria ensures we are playing an active role in widening access to employment for the communities we support.

Most of our applicants are young people who are seeking work experience to shadow professionals and get a feel for the working world as part of their development at school or college. We also welcome people who are further into their education or career journeys and are curious about a future career in the NHS.

How to apply

If you are organising your own placement, you can apply for a placement online. Please note, we only offer a limited number of placements each year, so we are unable to guarantee support for every enquiry.

If you are a school or college careers advisor seeking work experience placements for your students or you are interested in finding out how we can provide careers support for your network, please get in touch with us at
