Bringing together the generations is an important part of our work as this helps drive better understanding within the community. We offer placements to students aged 16+ who are interested in a career in older people services or working for a charity.
We offer a small number of places to year 10 students who are interested in gaining experience of roles in care, advice, community support, business administration or customer service.
We work with City College Norwich, Norwich Art’s School and the University of East Anglia in supporting practical placements for Health & Social Care, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Business Administration and Creative Writing qualifications. Students gain practical experience of applying their learnt skills with older people and exposure of a vibrant workplace environment.
All students are supervised at all times by an Age UK Norwich employee. All staff have active Disclosure Barring Check (DBS) records.
