National Healthcare Estates & Facilities Day – 21st June 2023

20 June, 2023

21st June is National Healthcare Estates & Facilities Day. It’s an occasion to celebrate our Estates & Facilities heroes so we have created a few case studies to mark the occasion.

We spoke to Luca Ferrari, a Level 4 Engineering Manufacturing Technician apprentice at Isle of Wight NHS Trust.

There is a lot more to the NHS than meets the eye. A lot of behind-the-scenes work goes on in making an NHS Trust function which you can help and be a part of. It is also a place where progression is valued and rewarded.

We spoke to Kane Brewster who is System Access and Registration Authority Officer at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Kane completed a Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship standard:

“To go from a full-time stable job to a £9k a year apprenticeship was scary. However, to move from a career I didn’t enjoy to having career prospects and something I can be proud of means a whole lot, and has changed me enough for my family and friends to notice a difference.”

Aamna Rafaqat is undertaking a Level 3 Business Administrator apprenticeship standard at Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust.

“I would recommend doing an apprenticeship as you are learning on the job, whilst also earning a wage, often achieving a qualification by the end of the process and more often than not, there is a permanent job with your company by the time you complete your qualification.”
