It’s National Careers Week – a time to share guidance and resources that support people to make informed decisions on their career path.

Prospective student resources

The RCSLT career hub is there to help you decide the best path for you if you are considering a future working in speech and language therapy.

There are resources for school pupils, career changers, those wanting to attend university and those interested in apprenticeships.

Not sure about what being a speech and language therapist involves? Learn about the working life of five different SLTs based in a variety of settings, including academia and the justice sector.

Already an SLT? Learn more about your career options

This week, AHPs’ Everywhere in partnership with the Chief Allied Health Professions Office are presenting the Diverse allied health professional career pathways webinar on 10 March 2022, 12 – 1pm.

The webinar will explore the options you might have outside of the more traditional allied health profession (AHP) roles and will go into detail about the opportunities and challenges a diverse role may bring.

Four AHPs in very different roles will be sharing their journeys and what they have learned along the way. It will be chaired by Stuart Palma, Head of Allied Health Professions (Professional and Systems Leadership), NHS England and NHS Improvement.

It will be hosted on Microsoft Teams as a live event and can be accessed using the attendee link. There is no need to register or book a space on this webinar.
