Employers flock to snap-up UWL students
More than 20 NHS Trusts, hospices and healthcare groups flocked to the University of West London Berkshire Institute for Health to recruit graduating healthcare students and help to fix the regions NHS staff shortage.
Across the NHS almost one in every 12 jobs is currently vacant and it is the number one issue facing most healthcare providers in Berkshire and the surrounding areas.
The Institute is equipped with the latest technology and learning aids to enable students to learn practical skills before becoming fully qualified healthcare professionals.
Debby Price, Deputy Dean for the College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare said: 'Every year we work with healthcare partners to train healthcare students who go on to deliver the best in nursing and midwifery for our local community.'
Leilah Wooldridge, Practice Development Nurse at the Royal Berkshire NHS Trust said:
We know from experience just how good students from UWL are. We work closely with the University so we know they have the clinical, practical and theoretical skills needed in the NHS today.
