Spalding area youngsters will get more support if they train for NHS roles
Youngsters in South Holland are being urged to consider a career in the NHS as part of a new campaign.
Students and people looking to switch careers could benefit from a £5,000 annual maintenance grant if they train to become a radiographer, physiotherapist, occupational therapist or paramedic.
The Government is taking action to encourage people to train in these vital roles after seeing a shortage of new recruits for Allied Professional roles.
- School pupils ensure village voices are heard
- Students run the world
- Sporting fun for South Holland youngsters
As well as the £5,000 grant, extra payments worth up to £3,000 a year will also be available.
These will be for people studying in regions or specialisms that are struggling to recruit, and for people with childcare responsibilities.
This new funding package will benefit around 100,000 students every year.
