The Vitality Stadium at AFC Bournemouth was the setting for last week’s NHS Apprenticeship Presentation. The event celebrated the students who had successfully completed their Apprenticeships in Clinical Health, Allied Health Professions, Perioperative Support and Maternity and Paediatrics.
Nearly 180 NHS staff have chosen to do an Apprenticeship through The Bournemouth & Poole College. The collaboration with the college started back in 2015 and was one of the first of its kind in the UK. It involves Dorchester County Hospital, Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital and the Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust.
The Apprentices, all employed by the NHS, gain nationally accredited qualifications, update their skills and progress in their career in the Health Sector. The NHS Apprenticeship can open up opportunities including Higher Education and progression within the NHS.
Staff from the college, Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital, Dorset County Hospital and Dorset Healthcare University Foundation Trust attended the event to congratulate the students and present their certificates.
Shailja O Leary, Senior Team Leader at the college said, ‘This evening was celebrating completions for the first cohort of students and was a great evening thoroughly enjoyed by all.’
