A group of young people celebrated their success today (Friday) after successfully completing their Modern Apprenticeship training at NHS Tayside.

Each apprenticeship has been carried out over two to four years and participants have experienced a range of placements within NHS Tayside to ensure they have a variety of experiences and learning opportunities.

A group of young people were presented with their completion certificates today by NHS Tayside Chairman Sandy Watson in front of colleagues, friends and family at a celebratory event to mark the end of their apprenticeship.

The apprentices included Nadine Duncan, Murray Robertson, Kerry Barlass and Courtney Cuthbert, who are the first graduates of NHS Tayside’s Modern Apprenticeship in Healthcare. They have all now secured full-time employment with NHS Tayside or obtained a place within full-time education.

NHS Tayside was the first Board in Scotland to offer the apprenticeship in healthcare, with other Boards now planning to introduce the role.

During the event, Fraser Gow was named as the NHS Tayside Property Department Apprentice of the Year.

Two new estates department apprentices were also welcomed to NHS Tayside during the celebration event.

NHS Tayside has supported Modern Apprenticeships programmes since 2006 offering a total of 45 places.
