YOUNG people with an interest in careers in the health and social care sector are being urged to sign up to a free event next week as part of Skills Month.

The Health & Social Care Careers Fair is taking place at the University of Bradford on October 11.

It will provide young people from secondary school up to university level with the opportunity to learn about career options directly from employers.

There will be a range of health professionals in attendance, including apprentices, theatre staff, midwives and physiotherapists.

The careers fair runs from 1pm to 5pm and begins with two school sessions, followed by a public session from 3pm.

Register for the public session here.

Skills Month involves the coming together of Bradford Manufacturing Weeks and Tech Week, and includes organisations from the health and social care, and culture sectors.
