15 October 2020
On AHPs Day, HEE published two quick gudies to support volunteeering and work experience.
Quick guide to volunteering:
This quick guide aims to support local health and social care systems in improving the health of people by involving volunteers; with practical examples of how the Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) can support implementation and roll-out of this part of the workforce. Although COVID-19 has meant a change in many of our practices and opportunities to have additional visitors in teams, there is still a need and plenty of opportunities to support volunteering in our services. It also serves to illustrate how AHPs can support further development of their skills and expertise. This is one of a series of online resources providing practical advice and case studies to support ‘AHPs into Action’.
Quick guide to work experience:
This guide describes the role of Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) in supporting people to engage with work experience within AHP services. Although COVID-19 has meant a change in many of our practices and opportunities to have additional visitors in teams, there is still a need and plenty of opportunities to deliver work experience. This step by step guide identifies the reasons for offering work experience, links to resources available to support the development of work experience opportunities and shares good practice from both pre and post COVID-19.
