Work experience is available as a ‘taster day’ to students who live and attend school/college in Gloucestershire.  We do, however, receive a large number of requests and we are limited in the number of placements that we can offer.

Students in year 12 who are studying  A Levels and mature students with relevant qualifications who are interested in a career in physiotherapy are considered for a 1 day 'taster' work experience day at either Cheltenham General Hospital or Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
