Staff at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust recently celebrated their achievements in completing apprenticeship qualifications they have studied for over the last year.
The Graduation Ceremony was held at Peterborough City Hospital on Wednesday 9 May and is the first of three graduation ceremonies to be held this year.
35 members of staff from Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford Hospitals were presented with certificates for apprenticeship qualifications including Maternity and Paediatric Support, Clinical Healthcare Support, Pharmacy Support and an Assessor qualification. A number of young apprentices, aged 16-18, also graduated.
Stephen Graves, Trust Chief Executive, said: “Achieving additional qualifications alongside working hours can be challenging. It demonstrates how dedicated our staff are to developing their own skills in order to carry out their roles to the highest standard and enhance further the care they provide to our patients.
“This year, for the first time, we will be holding three staff graduation events due to the number of additional qualifications achieved. It’s great to see our staff rewarded for the extra effort they undertake to enhance their skills and knowledge at work.”
