Apprenticeships in the NHS 16 – 25 year olds

27 Nov

Good afternoon,

It gives me great pleasure to let you know of another exciting opportunity for young people to gain experience and knowledge about working in the NHS.

Our next course “Get into NHS” will run from Monday 26th January until Friday 15th February 2015.

As you will see from the attached flyer young people who complete this course will:

 Gain practical work experience in a variety of departments such as catering, cleaning and estates

 Have the chance to learn how to keep the wards clean, distribute food to patients, deal with special diets, communicate with customers and maintain the grounds.

 Have the chance to gain training in Health and Safety and Manual Handling.

 Improve your teamwork, communication skills and boost your confidence, interview skills and CV

 Receive six month’s support after the programme to help you find a job

You may remember we ran this course earlier this year and the young people who completed this gain exceptional experience and many are now serving an apprenticeship within the NHS Trust.

As before this course will be run from Tickhill Road Hospital, Doncaster.

If you are working with or know any young people aged 16-25, are unemployed and interested in a career within the NHS they are welcome to join our FREE training programme next year.

As you will see I have attached the flyer for this course which gives more information together with a referral form which should be used for any young person who may have additional needs of support or who have a conviction.

Many thanks, I look forward to hearing from you.
