”I have really enjoyed my apprenticeship with Dynamo. When I left school I felt stuck on what I wanted to do, or what path to take. Dynamo helped me to find an apprenticeship in a GP Surgery and helped me develop into a clinical role (HCA) apprentice from a business admin apprentice. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is not sure what they want to do.’

Leah Taylor Winner of CASC Care Awards Health and Social Care Apprentice of the year 2016
I was very shy and nervous when staring my apprenticeship, I had to improve my communication skills and the apprenticeship was really good for building my confidence. My biggest challenges were overcoming shyness, dealing and severe illness/death and time management. My favourite part of the apprenticeship is working with people with dementia and learning the skills needed If i hadn’t started my apprenticeship I would probably be doing bar work now.
I believe an exceptional apprentice is dedicated, reliable, open minded and has a good sense of humour.
I would advise any new apprentice to not give up, learn to manage stress and stay positive! I would recommend a career in healthcare because it is very rewarding, you always meet new people and there are plenty of opportunities to learn new skills.
I would recommend training with Dynamo because they are very organised and the tutors are very understanding and helpful. There is plenty of support available.
