Unlocking Opportunities In Your Career

During your career, there will be key points when you stop and consider what your next steps might be. For example, when you prepare for your annual appraisal, on completion of an education programme, returning from a break in service (such as maternity leave) or when you are just ready for a new opportunity.                   

The AHP career path is rarely the ‘ladder’ that we used to think of. Instead there are multiple paths, and we often pursue more than one of them at once. 

This tool is designed to help you consider what experience and expertise you already have using the HEE Four Pillars of Advancing Practice: Clinical Practice, Leadership, etc etc.

It will take you roughly 10-20 minutes to work through it, and after this there will be a PDF report that you can download/print out to share with you manager, supervisor, coach or mentor for further discussion about next steps and resources.

Good luck with your next steps!
