Hello, my name is Ryan Chawner and I am an accounts apprentice here at NELFT. I started my level 2 AAT Apprenticeship with a recruitment firm in the finance department in September 2015. I passed my Level 2 AAT and then moved on to NELFT in November 2016 to start my Level 3 Apprenticeship, which I will explain why later on in this blog. I have wanted to become an accountant since I was about 14 years old.
Following the publication of the NHS Providers State of Communications report last month, Carrie-Ann Wade, director of communications, marketing and engagement, reflects on the role of communications within an NHS Provider trust and the impact that communications professionals can have on the delivery of trust objectives.
Hello, my name is Rhian Webb and I joined NELFT on 5 January 2016, when I started the Advanced Apprenticeship in Business Admin with the Medical Education team. When I first joined NELFT, I had just turned 19 and had just finished my last year of Sixth Form and completed my A Levels. Even after completing my A Levels at sixth form, I still didn’t really know what career path I wanted to take - but NELFT provided me with the first step to that ladder. I have since completed my apprenticeship at NELFT in April 2017 and have now moved up a role in my team to become a ‘Medical Education Co-ordinator’ in just 16 months of working in NELFT as an apprentice.

I am delighted to be writing my first #NELFTtalks blog post, particularly as it feels like there is an amazing sense of new energy in the organisation right now. It is a great time to be launching a new way to engage with people who are interested in NELFT.
