Smestow School Careers Fair
The Modern Apprenticeship and Work Experience Team had the privilege of attending Smestow School Careers Fair in October 2016.
The day was a success and there was a lot of interest from the pupils about Modern Apprenticeships within The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.
This was an exciting opportunity for our teams to reach out to the younger community and inform them of what fantastic prospects lie ahead with an RWT Apprenticeship and how they can learn more about the wide range of career options available in the NHS by applying for Work Experience within the Trust.
