The University of the West of England has launched an interactive roadmap to help Allied Health Professionals plan their careers.
With the aim of supporting student and working Allied Health Professionals (AHPs),the online resource lets users choose their area of interests, and helps them think more strategically about career planning, especially in leadership.
The resource, developed by the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol and Health Education England, can be accessed via the NHS England website.
On the launch of the project, UWE said: “In collaboration with Health Education England, UWE Bristol has designed a roadmap to encourage Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) and student AHPs to think more strategically about career planning and leadership and to consider the wider horizon of potential career directions in academia.
"The funded project provides an interactive resource about the educator role, and describes some of the available career pathways for those entering this branch of the AHP profession.
“AHPs at different stages of their journey in academia provide their story, from students to senior leaders, as they share insights and practical advice based on their own personal career trajectories.”
The university added: “The aim of the project was to get AHPs and student AHPs to think more strategically about career planning especially in leadership, by providing them with insight into a wider horizon of potential career directions, and signpost them to support mechanisms to help them progress.”
UWE hosts a selection of radiography courses, including BSc courses in diagnostic radiography, radiotherapy and oncology, as well as degree apprenticeships in both therapeutic and diagnostic radiography.
