We’re hearing some amazing stories of healthcare workers who are providing the vital services we all rely on so heavily – and one of them is our former apprentice Geralyn, who is now a critical care nurse for The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust. She works alongside other healthcare professionals assessing and treating critically ill patients, responding to medical emergencies and monitoring patients’ progress and condition.
She completed her Health and Social Care Apprenticeship at Sandwell College, which enabled her to gain sector experience as a care assistant and gain a Level 2 qualification. Geralyn was then able to apply for the Learning, Education and Progression (LEAP) course at the University of Wolverhampton, which was the foundation year for her Adult Nursing BNurs (Hons) Degree.
Geralyn says: “What I liked most about my experience at Sandwell College was the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills in class, whilst being able to put it into practice within our jobs attained through the course. Also, the outstanding support from my tutors who continuously encouraged and inspired us to achieve our chosen career paths.”
Thank you Geralyn. We’re extremely proud of all our alumni and students working on the frontline.
