Workchoice Day May 17th Capital & Coast Opens Its Doors To High School Students

May 17 is Workchoice Day and Capital & Coast DHB will be offering a unique insight around 70 students from across 7 schools in the Wellington region. This "hand's on" experience gives students the opportunity to learn about the many different options a career in healthcare can offer.

The annual Workchoice Day event is organised by the Human Resources department who have arranged for clinical staff to introduce students to the opportunities that are open to them by showcasing various roles through presentations and displays, including theatres, rehab, physio and laboratory roles. The students meet with healthcare staff to ask questions and learn more about what each role entails. Students are given the chance to use some of the equipment and get involved in the demonstrations taking place.

"Choosing a career can be very difficult, students who visit the hospital may never have thought of a particular healthcare career until they come here. Workchoice Day allows students to see what choices are open to them. By interacting with health workers and taking part in demonstrations they can really get a feel for what a role entails," said Matt Hall Recruitment Advisor for Allied Health.

"This is a wonderful event for us as a DHB to share the endless possibilities that a career as a health professional can offer," said C&CDHB CEO Mary Bonner. "There are so many rewarding options for young people to think about, from working in laboratories, to physiotherapy to the many different nursing roles. All offer a real chance to make a difference in our community."

WHAT/ WHERE: Workchoice Day, Wellington Hospital, May 17 from 9.30am - midday
