George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust recently supported four trainees who successfully undertook a brand new education and training programme at the hospital.
Traineeships offer valuable work experience for those looking to get an apprenticeship or full time work. The Traineeships were 8 weeks long and involved a combination of work placements at the hospital as well as classroom based support with broadening skills such as budget managing, CV writing, interview skills and IT training.
Work placements were offered within the Stores, Estates and Post Room teams at the hospital and offered each trainee a valuable insight into working within a busy hospital.
At the end of the 8 weeks the trainees Thomas Painter, Kyle King, Jamie Youson and Alexander Goddard, along with their families, were invited to attend a presentation event to celebrate their hard work and success.
One of the trainees has also been offered an apprenticeship within the hospital stores team.
Maxine Wheeler, Apprenticeship & Work Experience Manager, said “It’s the first time we’ve offered Traineeship’s here at the George Eliot and we’re really proud of its success. Each of our trainees has given 100% and overcome any challenges that they have may have faced on the programme. We’re so proud of them. We wish them all of the luck for their future careers.”
A second cohort of trainees will join the Trust in January 2020.
