Modern Apprentice Job Success

Modern Apprentice Job Success

The second group of Modern Apprentices to work with NHS Forth Valley have now graduated from what has been an extremely successful experience – with 13 out of 14 securing jobs with the health board.

The apprentices, who are between the ages of 16 and 24, were recruited in 2017 to work in business and administration roles in a number of departments across NHS Forth Valley including Health Records, the Oncology Unit and the Women and Children’s Directorate.

The one year opportunity gave them a chance to develop their knowledge and gain experience in the workplace, as well as work towards a SVQ level 2 qualification in Business and Administration, delivered in partnership with Forth Valley College.

One of our apprentices also got the chance to star in a new campaign by Forth Valley College, to celebrate Modern Apprentice Week. Jamie Dickson, who works in the Scottish Clinical Simulation Centre at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, appeared in a series of short videos and posters, alongside NHS Forth Valley’s Associate Director of HR, Alison Richmond-Ferns to share his story and highlight why he chose to undertake a Modern Apprenticeship.
