RNOH apprentices go for gold
Earlier this year, the RNOH apprentice programme and two apprentices from the scheme, Andrew Wills and Lucy Mumford, were shortlisted for the Health Education North Central and East London Quality Awards 2013. The awards acknowledge and celebrate the excellent work we have been doing at the Trust to develop young people and create new opportunities in our workforce.
In early December, Andrew and Lucy joined Leanne Chaney, Learning and Development Manager, and Lynda St Cyr, Healthcare Assistant (HCA) Trainer, at the awards ceremony in London and were delighted to hear that Lucy was awarded Apprentice of the Year. Andrew was highly commended, as was the RNOH apprenticeship programme.
Health Education England has given the RNOH a bursary for this success and we are planning to invest in some resources to support clinical skills for our HCA training.
