Students wanting to work in healthcare are getting on-the-job learning in many parts of the NHS.

The academy says it will be a "Foundation School in Health".

Health officials said that roles in IT, medical laboratories and other "corporate functions" would be offered to interested pupils, as well as patient care roles.
