Being a PA is such a fantastic job but you want to be 100% sure that this career is for you before embarking upon a two-year intensive training programme.
LAPA can offer work experience placements in both GP and hospital where you can shadow an experienced PA to gain a better understanding of the role and what it looks like in practice.
Alternatively, if you're a PA thinking about moving specialities then you may wish to trial the move before applying. We offer a range of taster weeks where you can shadow a PA working in that speciality to get a flavour of what it might be like before making the change. Similarly, if you would like to gain a bit more experience in another area then please contact us and we can facilitate a taster week or explore a rotation with you.
