Two members of staff who have undertaken apprenticeships at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) are celebrating wins at the City College Norwich Apprentice Awards 2018.
Tara Box, NNUH Nursing Assistant on the Acute Medical Unit was named Health Apprentice of the Year and Jamil Ahmed, NNUH Receptionist in Gastroenterology was named as Business Apprentice of the Year.
Tara Box said: “I’m really happy to not only have been nominated, but to also have won the award.
“It’s made me feel so proud of myself that on top of full time work and being a mum I managed to study and achieve this as well.”
Jamil Ahmed said winning the award had been exciting, but unexpected.
“Prior to starting my apprenticeship in June 2016 I was doing a traineeship where I spent a month with the Gastroenterology team.
“I enjoyed my time with them so much I was offered an apprenticeship with the reception team.”
The awards, which were held on March 5 at the International Aviation Academy, celebrate the achievements of individuals who have undergone apprenticeships in conjunction with City College Norwich.
City College Norwich is one of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals education training providers for apprenticeships, and the two organisations work in partnership to ensure that staff achieve their full potential through the apprenticeship training.
Jeremy Over, director of Workforce at NNUH said: “Apprenticeships are a dynamic way to learn practical skills that will enhance your future employment prospects and we’re very proud to offer a growing number of apprenticeship opportunities here at NNUH.”
