The NHS Graduate Digital, Data & Technology Scheme is the first grad scheme created to source and develop the best informatics graduates coming out of Universities, and employ them in our NHS and wider social care system.

The scheme has been commissioned by Health Education England and has been successfully piloted in London, North West, Yorkshire and Humber and is now being rolled out nationally. The scheme is based on a ‘grow your own’ model where the scheme assesses thousands of graduates that apply every year, for managers to select from to join their teams.

During this webinar we will hear about the plans to expand this scheme across England and what the application process entails for both organisations and individuals. We will also here first hand from trust managers and graduates who will share their experiences of the scheme to date.

The scheme is focusing on the South West region next and but will take expressions of interest from all other regions. We would therefore please encourage anyone interested in building their future capacity within their informatics and technology workforce to join us.
