This week is National Apprenticeship Week, so we wanted to celebrate our apprentices and share one of their stories with you:
Leanne joined us in 2016 as Compliance and Investigations Officer, however after taking part in a Managing Safely training course, she developed a passion for health and safety.
In 2020 she was asked if she’d like to take her interest in health and safety further, by doing a Safety, Health and Environmental Technician apprenticeship, which she leapt at!
Leanne is studying on a Safety, Health and Environmental course and spends time working alongside our Health and Safety Manager, which is her favourite part of the apprenticeship – the hands on approach.
On completion of her apprenticeship, Leanne will have a level 3 Technician qualification, which she hopes will help her become a Health and Safety Manager within the business.
Leanne said: “I’m grateful for the opportunity to do this apprenticeship, as I wanted to progress within Millbrook Healthcare and by putting me on this course, the company is showing their interest in me and are supporting me.
“What I enjoy most is working with the Health and Safety Manager and helping to support our colleagues across the business to ensure they stay safe and provide a safe service for our service users, I feel I’m really helping to make a difference.
We're proud of our apprentices, who are clearly demonstrating many of our values, particularly 'ready to learn and grow'.
