Bethany describes her apprenticeship as interesting, supportive and a great experience. She has gained a wealth of experience in the industry whilst studying toward her qualification.
“Studying full-time just wasn’t for me, I thoroughly enjoy working full time, gaining an income and working toward a nationally recognised qualification.
Earning while I learn has allowed me to develop skills in this industry and jump-start my career, I have gained the same qualification as those who took the classroom based route, but have over a years’ worth of hands-on experience.”
Bethany has plans to progress to a Nursing Degree at Northumbria University or continue onto the Nursing Degree Apprenticeship at Sunderland Hospital.
