There are many reasons to choose to become an occupational therapist. A key few:


  • Make a genuine difference to people's everyday lives - ability, meaning, roles, confidence

  • Work with varied groups of people - children, teenagers, adults, older people; cultural and socio-economic contrasts

  • Work in varied settings - hospitals, schools, the community, charities, prisons; statutory and private services

  • Career flexibility - to retrain and specialise within other areas of practice
