9 What the manager’s say Apprentices often excel with their IT skills and often love databases and spread sheets, being able to teach us older locality managers a thing or two!! Young people bring a vibrancy and challenge to the work environment and don’t feel afraid to ask the innocent questions as to why things are being done the way they are. I feel it makes you look at your own practices and procedures when you are training an apprentice, which can only improve the way in which we work. It has been a great opportunity to help a young person realise their potential and see a side to the NHS they have never been aware of before. Full of ideas and really energise the team

10 What the apprentices’s say I have truly valued the opportunity to learn and grow within a role I didn’t really understand at first. I look forward to continuing my career. I was so inspired in my admin role that I have chosen to continue with higher education and plan to become a qualified OT. I came into my apprenticeship not really knowing what I wanted to do with my life. I am now a HR professional qualifying through CIPD. I have realised that nursing is what I want to do and my apprenticeship has helped me realise my dreams of working with patients with dementia, making a difference to their care.
