This is a qualification which prepares people without traditional qualifications for study at university.

Over the next few months, we will be showcasing some of the rewarding career opportunities on offer across NHS Wales, starting with learning disability nursing. You will hear from dedicated learning disability nurses working across Wales who will tell you what it means to be in the role, including how you would be making a difference to other’s lives, and your own, every day. How you would play an important role in identifying and meeting people's health and wellbeing needs, whilst improving healthcare, social inclusion and quality of life. So, watch this space!

Whatever your skills, qualifications or interests, there is a career for you in the NHS and we are recruiting now. You could work directly with patients, in hospitals, in an ambulance trust or in the community. Just visit NHS Jobs to find out more. Once you are part of the NHS team, we will work with you to develop your career and fulfil your potential.
