Y12 Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust Voluntary Services Talk (12.15pm, 25th February), LRC Top Floor
Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust Voluntary Services Talk
Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust Voluntary Services Team (covering Pontefract, Pinderfield’s and Dewsbury Hospitals)
Date: Monday 25th February 2019
Time: 12.15pm (prompt start) to 1.00pm
Venue: LRC Top floor
Target Audience: Year 12 students (applying for Medicine/Nursing/Other Healthcare)
Placement Role Available: Voluntary only - completed during your own time
Students must be focused on following a career within Medicine/Nursing/Healthcare and are expected to have excellent college attendance (must be 95% or above). Any students who are currently on a behavioural contract will not be accepted. If you know you are not normally in college on a Monday and you do want the opportunity to apply to become a volunteer with Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust, please make any necessary arrangements to ensure you are able to attend this talk. Unfortunately any students who are unable to attend on that day will not be permitted to apply. There are only 25 volunteer places available.
At the end of the talk, students who would like to apply to become a volunteer will be given an NHS Volunteer Application Form to take away with them. The form should then be fully completed and the first 25 forms returned to the LRC Desk, will be accepted and processed for the NHS Voluntary Services team. The form must be fully completed or it will be returned to you. I will email students to confirm if they have been successful/un-successful and will advise by email when the first 25 forms have been received.
TIP: A key part of the NHS Volunteer Application Form is to provide the names and contact details of two Referees. One can be your Progress Tutor, the second must be someone you have known for 2 years or more. This cannot be a family member or friend and must be over 18 year old. An employer/school teacher/neighbour would be acceptable examples. Therefore, please start thinking about who you can put down as your second referee to avoid delays when you receive the application form.
BTEC Health & Social Care students are reminded that a voluntary placement with Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust would be in addition to their course linked placements.
