The People’s Academy & Young People’s Academy
Considering a career, or just interested in the NHS? Attend a People’s Academy
Following extensive public involvement in developing content, our award-winning People’s Academy was launched in 2018.
The People’s Academy is a free course comprising 4 sessions held over 4 weeks and covers the following topics:
- The NHS
- Our Hospitals
- Our Population
- How to #GetInvolved
Each session is made up of presentations, short films, activities and the opportunity to meet staff from across our hospitals. Where possible, we will also include site visits in the sessions.
The People’s Academy evolved into an online course during the pandemic, and all future courses will offer the opportunity to join remotely.
In 2023 we will be holding our first “hybrid” People’s Academy courses as we return to face-to-face delivery, please see details below:

The Young People’s Academy (YPA) provides a one day session including the most popular sessions from the People’s Academy for young people aged 14+. During a day packed with activities and departmental visits participants are able to find out more about their hospitals and career opportunities in the NHS.
In its first 2 years, more than 200 young people completed a Young People’s Academy course, gaining a certificate, badge and valuable experience for their CV or UCAS application.
The upcoming academy is now full, but we have a waiting list if you would like to join it.
