#BAFTATV - BAFTA’s leading actresses are inspirational women

06 May 2016

This Sunday (8 May) the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) television awards take place. Celebrating the best television programmes from 2015, the award ceremony takes place at the Royal Festival Hall in London. In the lead up to the ceremony we are looking at how you can career inspiration from TV programmes and those nominated for awards.

This year’s nominations for the Leading Actress category of the House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards are inspirational. Claire Foy for Wolf Hall is the bookies favourite for her portrayal of Britain’s most notoriously ambitious woman ever, Anne Boleyn.

Foy is challenged by Suranne Jones for Doctor Foster, Sheridan Smith for The C-Word and Ruth Madeley for Don’t Take My Baby. All three of these dramas cover challenging subjects and offer insights into the worlds of medicine, care and social work.

With an ageing and growing population the caring professions continue to face skills and recruitment shortages. Doctor Foster and her non-fictional colleagues are part of a multi-layered health and care industry with careers as doctors, nurses, oncologists, dementia specialists, social workers and many others available. The entry requirements, training and jobs differ but the strand running through all of these careers is the desire to make life better for others.

The caring professions welcome new recruits from all walks of life. If you are thinking of retraining or at the start of your career you can find out more about medical careers, caring careers or social work by visiting the National Careers Service website.

Good luck to all the inspirational women and men nominated in this Sunday’s House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards.
