It encourages students to discuss and explore health and social care, allowing them to acquire new knowledge, share experiences and learn from each other.

Jobs That Care is currently focussed on secondary school students who are considering their subject options for GCSE and beyond. However, it is relevant to anyone considering their first job, a change in career or a return to work.


The main aims of the programme are to inform and inspire students to:

  • Recognise that health & social care is more diverse than they knew
  • Appreciate the variety of roles, not just for highly qualified specialists
  • Realise a job in health & social care offers training and career progression
  • Understand that a career within health & social care is fulfilling and rewarding
  • Discover that working in health & social care is exciting and sociable
  • Take positive action to discover more and explore the resources available

The Jobs That Care Play

This play has been scripted specifically for Jobs That Care by Enact Solutions which takes the audiences through three-engaging scenes based in a GP surgery, a community setting and finally, a hospital. The plot reveals three young school mates seeking out a lost friend moving through the three scenes and meeting many different health and social care professionals along the way. The first two-week tour in January 2019 visited 20 schools in South West London and was performed in front of 5,000 Year 8 students.
