Success Story: Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
“I had a contact at the local job centre who knew about the apprenticeship programme and supported me to apply. I thought it was an excellent way of getting into the NHS. I had spent two years at university and was over £20,000 in debt, and I felt that I wanted to try something else.
The main concerns I had was my age. Most apprenticeships were only available to 16-24 year olds, and I was over this age bracket.”
Shahajan attended and passed through the recruitment and selection process, and was accepted onto the programme in October 2016.
