The Science Saves programme exists to raise the profile of healthcare science, its staff and career opportunities. Established by the social enterprise Faith in Science C.I.C., we aim to show students and the public that the health sector is not just made of doctors and nurses. Of course the pandemic has prevented us moving forward with school careers events so we launched a YouTube channel showcasing healthcare science staff.
We are currently working on a series of interview videos dedicated to healthcare science apprentices, as they are often an under-represented staff group in outreach activities. To make this happen we are seeking healthcare science apprentices (or those who have recently completed an apprenticeship) to take part in an interview for our channel. We want to see as much diversity in both specialisms and staff as possible to better inspire the next generation! We handle all of the editing and post-production – the estimated time commitment for participants is around 30 minutes.
You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook – use @SciSaves for both.
