- NHS Health Care Assistant
- NHS Health & Social Care Apprenticeship
Rebecca originally joined another college to study for an Animal Care qualification. However, Rebecca didn’t feel this path suited her and instead decided to take up an apprenticeship with the NHS she had seen advertised by Hopwood Hall College’s apprenticeship team.
Learning whilst earning a wage in a professional environment suited Rebecca much more. Her work ethic, eagerness to learn and her personality soon started to impress her colleagues and managers.
Not long after, Rebecca was offered a full time role as a Health Care Assistant. Now she is a full time employee, she plans to progress within the NHS into a nursing role or higher.
“I have really got a lot back from starting an apprenticeship. What I learned at college really complimented my development in the workplace and vice versa.
“Since working at the NHS I have met a lot of different people and I have become a much more confident person. I'm here because I tried something new with the apprenticeship and it turned out to be something I enjoyed lot. I think a lot of people would benefit from taking a risk and trying something new too.”
