We’re delighted to announce that, in partnership with Health Education England, the Student Leadership Programme will be able to support an additional five students to be part of the #150Leaders in 2021.
The places will be available specifically to allied health students from disciplines including, but not limited to, orthoptics, prosthetics and orthotics, podiatry and therapeutic radiography students. Selected students will be able to participate in all elements of the Student Leadership Programme and will also have the opportunity to engage with Health Education England’s work around allied health.
The Student Leadership Programme and Health Education England have already been working together for a number of years, looking at issues that affect students including recruitment to allied health professions, thinking about the various career opportunities in allied health and supporting Health Education England via a student AHP reference group.
We are very grateful to HEE for the ongoing support to the Student Leadership Programme and look forward to continued collaboration in the future.
Applications for the Student Leadership Programme 2021 open on 1 April and close on 25 April. For more information, visit the applications section of the website.
