National Apprenticeship Week 2019: Elly Gunning

Elly is a Healthcare Assistant at Farnham Hospital and is currently undertaking an Assistant Practitioner Apprenticeship.

Already working for Virgin Care’s Surrey and North East Hampshire Community Services but wanting to further her career and be challenged, she applied for the apprenticeship.

Originally hoping to undertake midwifery training, Elly was unable to do so due to the cost implications. The apprenticeship was a great alternative to be able to continue to develop and further her career while earning a salary.

“This was a golden opportunity to progress,” said Elly.

The Assistant Practitioner Apprenticeship was the ideal one for Elly due to her interests with in the healthcare industry.

She found out about the apprenticeship from a poster on display in the hospital and her manager encouraged to apply for the position.

Expecting to complete the apprenticeship in April this year Elly will be looking for an Assistant Practitioner position within Virgin Care.
