“The experience my son had there was fantastic. He didn’t enjoy school but did well [at AFC] and really loved the fact that everything is very hands on. He had some great role models. Taught him some good basics and he continues his army career. I had initial reservations but couldn’t recommend it enough.”

Doctors Live are a group of doctors passionate about inspiring the next generation of students into Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, and Allied Health Professions. They run an online interactive weekly Anatomy club covering live virtual dissection of various human body systems, how they work and what could go wrong. They've been running sessions throughout the pandemic and received great feedback, so they wanted to reach out to more keen students. They make sure the sessions are fun, interactive, and are accessed online from the comfort of the students' home. Each session starts with an organ system and then we delve deeper into various topics including:
1. How the organ system works
2. What could go wrong
3. Live virtual operations – getting an insight on how Surgeons operate
4. Live practicals – demonstrating how organ systems are examined
5. Looking through various scans of real-life cases (all of course anonymized).
These sessions are perfect for any students aged 14+ interested in a career in Healthcare and certificates will be provided for participation.
Their sessions run weekly every Tuesday from 6 pm until 8 pm.
Please note, places are limited and are first come first serve basis. The next session for the Anatomy club starts in May 2021 and runs weekly for 1 month. To learn more about our club and how you can sign up please visit:

We appreciate that some of you may have advanced in your career, however we will consider your applications if you still fall into the 16-18yo category, still in school education or started your foundation or a first year of an undergraduate degree or equivalent. We are, unfortunately, unable to consider applicants who have already started an apprenticeship.
We will review your individual circumstances on a case by case basis and are determined to provide an opportunity to those who could not join the Engineering Taster Week last year due to the event cancellation in the current climate.
We are looking forward to having you on board this year! If you required any assistance please contact the Taster Week Team.
