Why did you decide to start an apprenticeship?

After exploring various nursing fields and participating in placement opportunities, I gained invaluable knowledge and had a fantastic learning experience. Being an apprentice has been the highlight of my life so far, as I have pursued my passions, met a diverse range of individuals, and earned a wage while learning.

I am extremely grateful for the opportunity that SHSC has given me to embark on apprenticeship training. It provides practical training and many benefits to enhance my studies.

As an individual, I thrive on challenges and am highly adaptable to various situations. My work ethic is solid, and I am always reliable. I excel both in team environments and when working independently. My greatest strengths lie in my unwavering patience and sincere empathy for those under my care, regardless of the situation's complexity. 

What has been your proudest achievement on your apprenticeship to date?

Defining a single moment I am most proud of is a daunting task. However, I take immense pride in my academic accomplishments thus far in my university apprenticeship. The journey has been arduous, yet I am delighted to have come this far.

What would you say to someone considering an apprenticeship?

Suppose someone experiences anxiety upon leaving school or after a prolonged period but aspires to enter the healthcare field. In that case, they can take solace in the fact that there is another viable option. Apprenticeships provide an excellent chance to acquire expertise and proficiency backed by substantial guidance and assistance.
