OT Week is a national event that happens all across the UK to highlight the diverse work that OTs do! Events take place at hospitals, clinics, schools and a multitude of services where occupational therapy is provided. Yes, even our students here at CCCU get involved.
Tuesday, 4th November: 10am – 2pm at the Touchdown Cafe at the Canterbury Campus
Tuesday, 4th November: 10am – 3pm at Augustine House, Canterbury
Wednesday, 5th November: 10am – 4pm at Touchdown Cafe in the Rowan Williams Building at the Medway Campus
So keep your eyes peeled this week, as it may help you link across to an OT service you weren’t aware of, and will help you in your preparation for your UCAS personal statement, and also as part of our requirements in preparation for an interview for our programme.
OT week UK is part of a world wide event – World Occupational Therapy Day that usually takes place on 27th October annually. This is organized by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT), whose aim is that the WFOT World Occupational Therapy Day will be integrated with other national celebrations and promotions of the mission and goals of occupational therapy. Many countries hold an occupational therapy week or month at this time of year. Their theme this year is United in Diversity.
