You name it! Help us name our brand new website

It’s time to get creative! We are inviting secondary school students to help us name our new website.

Our new website will provide career education, a chance to experience work and provide clear guidance and advice on the many routes into a career within the NHS and social care in Northamptonshire. If students are feeling extra creative, they can design a visual and/or logo to go with the name too!

Please note: The competition is to win the ‘naming’ of our website; the logo is being asked to aid inspiration and creativity of the name. Should the partnership judges like a logo they see; the partnership will get in touch with the entrant to discuss the use of their design. 

Top tips for students to get started:

Think of a name that would attract students to find out more about a career in health and social care and be in with a chance of grabbing a prize! Remember:
