I'm really sorry if this is already somewhere on the forum but I couldn't seem to find anything it on it, I wondered if anyone could offer any advice...
I'm 27 years old, I have an undergraduate degree in Archaeological Science and a Masters in Museum Studies, after several years of hitting a wall trying to get a decent museum job I have decided to go for a change of career. My husband works for Yorkshire Ambulance Service and his work has always really interested me. I've looked at the course offered at Sheffield Hallam (my nearest university as I cant move at the moment) and they require you to have experience of working in the care environment.
I was a First Aider at my old place of work and have lots of experience of training and supervising volunteers with a variety of mental health issues. Is any of this relevant? I'm really keen on applying and starting as soon as possible so I don't know if I try and get a few weeks experience with say the Red Cross would that be enough or will they expect me to have months and months of experience as say a First Responder?
Any advice anyone can give would be much appreciated!!!
