Careers and Engagement
The Prince’s Trust is currently delivering a contract with the Department of Health to support young people aged between 16 and 30 into work within the health and social care sector. They are keen to develop relationships with employers across primary care and have discussions about working together to support filling entry-level vacancies across sites in Lancashire and South Cumbria.
The Princes Trust will work locally and find local young people who are keen to work in our sector and start their careers in primary care. They will help us recruit across all entry-level positions clinical and non-clinical and allow us to take a flexible approach to bringing young people into our businesses through different programmes which can be viewed in this information booklet.

A Person’s Holistic Journey within Health and Social Care Sectors is an innovative and unique careers and engagement package which has been developed by Lancashire & South Cumbria Primary Care Training Hub (L&SCPC TH) in partnership with Lancashire Careers Hub and Integrated Care System (ICS) Careers and Engagement Team.
The package aims are:
- To provide a framework to gain a holistic overview of the services a person would access within the health and social care system
- A holistic approach within an individual’s journey, aims to encourage pupils to consider what career pathways are available within all our health and social care services
- Gain an understanding of how lifestyle choices impact on a person’s health and well-being
Delivered by healthcare professional ambassadors and supported by pre-registration medical and non-medical student volunteer ambassadors, these workshops contribute to schools’ careers programmes, and Workshops can be delivered to students across Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 and are in accordance with Gatsby Benchmarks.
