New health and justice careers elearning programme now available

Louise Garrahan, 10 May 2022
Health and justice careers

An elearning programme about career options within health and justice settings has been developed by Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and the NHS England national health and justice team.

The resource provides learners with a basic overview of the health and justice services commissioned by NHS England and the career options within these services. This includes healthcare within the criminal justice system, immigration removal centres and sexual assault referral centres. The elearning programme also covers healthcare careers within the children and young people’s secure estate, including young offender institutions, secure training centres and secure children’s’ homes.

The course was co-developed with expert stakeholders and people with lived experience working within health and justice. It is designed to explain and promote the unique working environments and career opportunities available within health and justice commissioned services and to provide information on what to expect should individuals choose a career within one of these services.

The development of this course forms part of the NHS England Health and Justice Inclusive Workforce Programme. The aim of this programme is to improve the recruitment and retention of a larger, more diverse, inclusive and representative workforce for all health and justice services and programmes.

By the end of this elearning programme, which consists of 1 session, learners should be able to:

* understand the health and justice services commissioned by NHS England and how they support their respective client/patient groups
* understand the range of roles within each type of service
* understand where to go to find out more information about these services and role opportunities
* reflect on personal career options and opportunities
* reflect on personal knowledge, skills and development needs

The programme is aimed at anyone interested in exploring the services and career opportunities available within the health and justice sector.
