Find out about the professions that are recruiting
Do you think you are made for the health professions? A professional retraining represents a major turning point for your life and your career. Before you start, make sure you are sufficiently informed by asking yourself the right questions. What are the most sought-after positions? What conditions do they impose? Can they match your profile? Know above all that the profession of caregiver is one of those who recruit. The same is true for positions relating to rehabilitation, such as the profession of physiotherapist. If you like contact with children, you can also consider retraining as a childcare assistant.
In addition to a precise idea of the most promising professions, find out about the companies to which you can apply. Sites like Gowork bring together many reviews from well-known companies to give you an idea of the conditions that await you. These company reviews are posted by users of all kinds, anonymously or publicly.
Training in the field of your choice
Working in the health field generally requires a state diploma. A 12-month training is required in particular to become a caregiver. Admission is by competitive examination or by validation of acquired experience. Indeed, holders of a state diploma in another social or health field may be exempted from certain modules. In addition to theoretical training, internships are essential to become more professional.
Student still in training? You can use the gateway competitions to move from your sector to another in the field of health. However, this procedure is only valid if your course includes some notions in this area.
In addition, it is also possible to train for a health BTS. This is a 2-year course allowing you to work as a dietitian or laboratory staff. The BEP ASSP is also available for those seeking retraining as a childcare worker or carer.
