Apprenticeships: an investment in the future
With our help and support, Bakewell Medical Centre has enjoyed the benefits of employing and skilled and enthusiastic Apprentice, Becky Rimmer, and now has a highly valued full time member of staff.
Bakewell Medical Centre says:
Becky interviewed extremely well against some excellent competition – her personality and enthusiasm shone through and she has carried this into her role. She is such a delight to have in the team being cheerful and eager to learn and take on new responsibilities..
DACES has supported Becky and ourselves throughout extremely positively and professionally giving guidance and steering us both in the right direction.
I started my apprenticeship in February 2015 and have really enjoyed it. The staff are so friendly and I like the fact that every day is different with the jobs you undertake and the patients you deal with.
I have learned so much since I first started as I am now able to make appointments, chase results, complete the deductions, I have also learned how to work in the dispensary at the surgery.
Working at the surgery has made me more confident as a person, which has helped me to deal with any challenging patients.
I think that doing an apprenticeship was the best step for me as university was not something I would have enjoyed and I prefer to learn whilst doing the job.
