Work Experience

The Trust is committed to providing work experience to students in years 10-13 who are living and studying in the boroughs of Brent, Ealing and Harrow.

Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to support applications from schools outside our local boroughs.

Work experience provides an opportunity for students to consolidate work based learning skills and help them to make informed career choices, as well as offering a high quality positive opportunity to contribute to the local community.  

We have opportunities for clinical and non-clinical placements at London North West Healthcare NHS Trust.  Students under 16 years of age will be offered placements in non-clinical/administrative work areas only.

Placements for students differ in each ward, department or area of placement. The main aim of work shadowing (for clinical placements) will be confined to observation only. Under no circumstances will students be permitted to take an active part in any situation relating to patient care.

If you meet the above requirements and wish to apply for work experience placement in our Trust, please see the table below for opening dates for applications. 

Applications are now closed for the current term but please check again when the online application form (and printable version) will be available for our next intake.

If you have submitted a form we will review the application and inform you of the result as below -
