Duke of Edinburgh
We offer places for students working towards their Duke of Edinburgh awards. We can support pupils aged 14 and above in 10 of our retail outfits. Please contact the Shop Manager directly, to see if they have any spaces for Duke of Edinburgh students.
Student Volunteers Week
We understand that volunteering and studying go hand in hand for some people, as they learn so much from both. Student Volunteers Week runs in February each year and provides an opportunity for the Hospice to acknowledge the various roles our students support – the Inpatient Unit, Retail and many more. This week also allows us to share the importance of studying to enhance skills and do more.
Have You Got What It Takes
Students wanting to go into medicine or other roles in a healthcare field are welcomed to join the Inpatient Unit team to help gain experience in this field and discover whether palliative care is the right avenue.
Students in years 11, 12 & 13 are also invited to attend our Education programme called, ‘Have You Got What It Takes', which runs twice a year and helps students to understand the realities of going into a healthcare environment.
