Flexible career opportunities
Although the Talent Bank has a focus on health care and health science, students acquire robust qualifications and transferable skills universally welcomed by all employers and universities. The unique education equips students for the world of work whatever career pathway they may eventually choose, and encourages learners to explore opportunities they may not even know exist.
Extensive health career opportunities
For those who decide on a health-focused career pathway our partnership with the two local Health Boards, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board and Hywel Dda University Health Board provides a valuable insight into the 350+ career opportunities offered by the UK’s largest employer. However, even with such high level of choice, prospects are not limited to medical care or laboratory roles. Another rich seam for employment is public health which focuses on preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting wellbeing. There is tremendous career diversity and opportunity across the entire health economy locally, nationally and globally spanning the NHS, Local Authorities, charitable organisations, private businesses and community schemes.
Careers advice and support
All Talent Bank students benefit from extensive careers advice and signposting to help them on their journey through education and into the world of work, higher education, apprenticeship or specialist training.
Whatever student's eventual choice, everyone is given valuable access to career specialists and professionally qualified partners, all of whom are happy to share their first-hand knowledge and experience to help our young people make important decisions about their life choices.
