Nurse Cadets - Thames Valley : Oxford Health FT, Central and North West London FT, The Hazeley Academy, Milton Keynes University Hospitals FT, MK College, Bucks Healthcare Trust, Bucks College Group

The Nurse Cadet project facilitates young people (aged 16-18) to work in healthcare settings and seeks to provide guaranteed career pathways to enable them to develop and be retained as qualified members of staff. The project currently works with four NHS Trusts in partnership with three Further Education institutes to provide a pipeline for our local workforce. Whilst the project has just completed its pilot year, the ambition is for this to be expanded both geographically and to different healthcare settings to ensure that we are meeting the workforce demand within the local population. Our future workforce, their career, starts now!
