"Doing an apprenticeship has enabled me to get back into learning without compromising on my earnings. I always wanted to go back to university following completing my original degree but having a young family with bills to pay prevented me from doing so. This was an opportunity I couldn’t miss out on.
I have further developed necessary skills and experience to succeed in my chosen career in Nursing. It has allowed me to continue in paid employment alongside studying and expanding my knowledge, ultimately leading to me gaining an extra qualification and attaining the next step in my career ladder. I have also been able to gain insight and guidance from a range of healthcare professionals, alongside lecturers at university, and have felt extremely supported throughout. It has provided an excellent platform for networking and connecting with others who are also passionate about delivering high quality care."
