NHS Cadets is a brand-new scheme created by St John Ambulance in partnership with the NHS. It’s designed to provide you with the opportunity to explore roles in healthcare.

The programme consists of two pathways: Foundation (for 14–16-year-olds) and Advanced (for 16–18-year-olds). You'll learn about a range of exciting healthcare topics, develop your leadership and communication skills, and gain insight into volunteering within the NHS.

It is a free programme consisting of 2-hour weekly sessions over 11 months. You’ll be supported throughout your volunteering journey by our NHS Cadets Team.
