GCS Training supports Welsh Ambulance apprentices

The Welsh Ambulance Service has taken on two new apprentices.
Demi Tamplin and Rhiannon Harries, both from Swansea, started in their new roles as apprentice business secretaries last week after successfully taking part in an interview process.
During their time with the Trust they will be undertaking an NVQ Diploma in Business Administration in partnership with Gower College Swansea, working towards their Level 2 qualification.
The programme has been funded by the Welsh Government with money from the European Social Fund.
Demi, 22, said: “I first found out about the role on the NHS website. I was looking on there for a couple of months and when I came across it I just thought it was a great opportunity for myself. It’s a good establishment with a good reputation and the fact that you get a pension appeals to me. It’s going really well, I’ve already been learning a lot about the administration and clerical side of things.”
Rhiannon, 18, said: “I’ve always wanted to become a secretary and I’ve been enjoying it so far. I’ve been learning about organising diaries and meetings. It’s definitely something I would like to do in the long term.”
Helen Lumber, a PA for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: “We’re really excited to be taking on our first ever apprentices. It’s a great opportunity for them to learn more about business administration within the ambulance service. They’re also earning while they’re learning as they’re being paid to work for us.”
Andy Cavill, Assessor Tutor at Gower College Swansea, said: “I’m delighted that Demi and Rhiannon have been successful in their applications for employment with the Welsh Ambulance Service and I’m looking forward to working with them as they study towards their NVQ with Gower College Swansea.
“The NVQ Diploma will look at topics such as communication, managing personal development and business documentation, with the aim of expanding the students’ understanding of all aspects of Business Administration. Demi and Rhiannon will achieve a nationally recognised qualification which is valued by employers, while also developing their skills and competence in the workplace.”

“"Just wanted to let you know that I had a successful assessment today for Approved Contractor and Domestic Installer with the NICEIC. Part of my being successful is due to the courses I completed with GCS Training and the help you all gave me in passing these courses." Mashjo Electrical ”
