QEH success for apprenticeship completion

Liam Cawston, Head of Portering, at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital has successfully completed his level 5 Operations Management apprenticeship achieving a distinction.

Liam started his apprenticeship in 2017 soon after accepting the role as Head of Portering at the hospital, a role he had previously held for six months on secondment. The apprenticeship course provided Liam with the knowledge and skills of managing people effectively which will benefit him immensely with his role.

The hospital provides a range of apprenticeship programmes and is passionate about encouraging and supporting its staff in personal development; working in close partnership with King’s Lynn’s College of West Anglia, where Liam’s apprenticeship was operated through.

Liam said: “the course was really useful and has been a huge benefit to me in my role at QEH already. I would strongly encourage anyone thinking about developing themselves though any of the hospital’s apprenticeship schemes, both the hospital and the educators are so supportive and really encouraging.”

“The apprenticeship has given me the knowledge and confidence to help support me in my role as a manager. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend it.”
