Learner Profile: Alex

Alex started his Apprenticeship straight from school. An Apprenticeship was the perfect way for him to get the qualifications to fast track his career.

His first substantive role at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust was working in the Income and Contracting Team and his work ethic made it very easy for the team to give him a lot more responsibility.

Alex passed all his Accountancy Level 4 exams first time, completed his Business Skills ahead of target and is aiming to be the youngest qualified in CIMA in the Trust.

Alex said “When I left school I had no idea where my Apprenticeship would take me. It is with thanks to my employer that I have achieved so much in such a short space of time. An apprenticeship was definitely the perfect choice for me. I got to learn on the job while gaining qualifications as well as being paid. I’m really hoping I become the youngest person for the NHS Trust to be qualified for CIMA, it will be a great achievement.”

"Alex has proved himself during the last three years that he has worked within the team; he has worked hard to develop his skills and has proved to be a quick learner always eager to take on new roles and responsibilities."
