Within Bridgewater you must be 16 or over to complete clinical work experience, due to the nature of the work. However, our non-clinical opportunities are open to anyone aged 14 or over.

You will be required to complete some independent learning via creating careers, prior to being considered for a placement. You will need to email the team with evidence of this learning at which point you will be provided with available placement dates and options.
