Recent and upcoming events
On the 3rd of October 2018 we attended the Skills Yorkshire Show at the Centenary Pavilion, Elland Road in Leeds to tell people about ‘the most rewarding job they’ve probably never heard of’.
The show brings young people from Yorkshire face-to- face with employers, training providers, colleges, universities and professional bodies. Along with our fellow exhibitors from the health sector we were awarded ‘best stand’.
Want to learn more about being an ODP? Want to speak to people who do the role and see where they work?
