Work Experience

If you are a Year 12 student or older and are thinking of a career in mental health, then Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust Work Experience is for you!

Work experience is unpaid and is for two days, with placements ranging from clinical settings on a mental health ward to offices and reception areas. We can offer two days in a clinical setting in Nuneaton for those between 17 and 18; aged 18+ we can offer two days in Coventry at the Caludon Centre or Warwick at St Michael’s Hospital. Admin placements for Year 12 students are for two days up to one week and these could be anywhere in the Trust within Warwickshire providing there is availability.

Purpose of Work Experience

Work experience aims to provide you with experience of how the NHS Trust functions from both a support and clinical point of view. Generally the work experience will be consecutive days and will be based in the same setting.

We will try our best to match your requirements to the placements which we offer but this will not be guaranteed. Please note that some departments do have age restrictions.

Additionally, if you are thinking of undertaking a nursing degree at Coventry University, find out about pre-degree work experience on offer at
