The Health Secretary has Announced £20m in Funding for NHS Young People

The health and social care secretary has announced that they are going to be given over £20m in funding to support 10,000 young people. They are going to be helping them from all backgrounds in an attempt to get them into a career in the NHS. This is going to be matched by £7 million from Prince’s Trust too. The 3-year employment program is going to start later this year and it is going to involve over 150 NHS trusts in England. People who participate are going to be given basic skills and they are also going to be given some support with their experience too. The program is going to try and focus on helping those who need it to gain basic skills. The program is also going to help people to overcome any barriers that are stopping them from gaining employment in the private nursing or homecare industry.

It is expected to help 5,000 young people to get into the NHS and they are doing it more for entry-level positions too. 5,000 more are planning on joining though apprenticeships. Some of the roles that are going to be included are digital roles, business administration or even catering.

The programme is actually going to be delivered by the Prince’s Trust and it is also going to be heavily supported by the Health Education England sector too. They have worked closely with the trust to make sure that they are given all of the support that they require, and they have also tried to make sure that they are able to achieve all of their goals, which so far has been absolutely astonishing. Of course, only time will tell if there are going to be any more movements in the industry but so far things are looking great and this is a sign of even better things to come.
