One of my favourite TV shows is The Apprentice with Lord Sugar and so when the topic of apprentices came up in discussions with the local council my ears perked up.
I believe the role of a dental nurse in any clinic is of paramount importance and it gives a school leaver a brilliant opportunity to pursue a good, solid career with excellent training opportunities.
Glasgow City Council is working with a number of business partners to help deliver the social benefit that the Commonwealth Apprenticeship Initiative will bring for the city. The Council believes that apprenticeships play a central role in growing skills in Glasgow. The council is committed to increasing the range of apprenticeships it offers for 2010 and is working with a number of businesses across the city to do this. A number of school leavers who applied to the CAI expressed an interest in dental nursing and my practice has pledged to support the initiative by interviewing some of the Council’s potential apprentices for a post in the new clinic. Interviews will take place soon…..
