Apprentices at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust were recognised at the first Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Health & Social Care Apprenticeship Awards. The event was hosted by BBC One’s the Apprentice contestant, Aaron Willis, at Mellor’s Stanley House Hotel and Spa.
Twelve apprentices from Lancashire Teaching Hospitals were shortlisted for awards across eleven categories. The nominees were: Brittany Mollart, Chloe King, Christina Bolger, Claire Conway-Wade, Eric McLaren, Imtiaz Ali, James Davies, Karen Gore, Katie Finan, Lynsey Robertson, Meg Kenward and Olivia Dymond.
The Trust was also shortlisted for ‘Apprentice Employer of the Year’ for the work that it does to develop hundreds of apprentices in the workplace across a range of clinical and non-clinical roles each year.
Lancashire Teaching Hospital’s Widening Participation Tutor, Olivia Dymond, secured herself a highly commended award after coming runner up in the category of ‘Non-clinical Apprentice of the Year’ for her hard work and dedication on the Level 6 Career Development apprenticeship standard.
Talking about her achievement, Olivia said:
“It was an absolute honour to have received this award. To be awarded highly commended as the Non-Clinical Apprentice of the Year out of the entire health and care sector in Lancashire & South Cumbria was humbling and I was up against some truly fantastic nominees.”
The Trust are incredibly proud of all its apprentices and the Apprenticeship Team who work hard on a daily basis, alongside training providers, to ensure that the apprentices enhance their own career and make a positive impact at the Trust.
