Con­grat­u­la­tions to appren­tice Isa Khan who has won a sil­ver Appren­tice of the Year award at the Skills for Health, Health Heroes Awards.

Isa with his award.

Isa who is cur­rent­ly com­plet­ing his Lev­el 2 Health­care Sup­port Work­er appren­tice­ship with us at Not­ting­ham Uni­ver­si­ty Hos­pi­tals was nom­i­nat­ed for the award for being a true role mod­el’ in COVID 19, and for his ded­i­ca­tion to rais­ing aware­ness for Black Lives Mat­ter and the BAME net­work across Not­ting­ham Uni­ver­si­ty Hos­pi­tals Trust.

The Appren­tice of the Year Award recog­nis­es and cel­e­brates the sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion made by an appren­tice with­in their organ­i­sa­tion in the health­care sector.

This award shines a light on the bright stars of the future, with indi­vid­u­als who have not only gone above and beyond at their organ­i­sa­tion, but act as advo­cates and ambas­sadors for appren­tice­ships as a route to health­care careers, in both clin­i­cal and oper­a­tional roles.

Isa who works in works in surgery divi­sion on a trau­ma and orthopaedic ward was nom­i­nat­ed by Work­force Train­er Emma Cross along­side his ward ear­ly on in his appren­tice­ship for embrac­ing all aspects of ward life and always being keen to devel­op his skills. 

Isa start­ed his L2 Health­care Sup­port Work­er Appren­tice­ship at the height of Covid-19 with no expe­ri­ence but over­came this chal­lenge and now embraces all aspects of ward life. Will­ing­ly tak­ing on house­keep­er duties, in addi­tion to usu­al tasks, he ensures the smooth run­ning of the ward. 

 — Emma Cross, Wider Work­force Lead Train­er, Not­ting­ham Uni­ver­si­ty Hospitals.

Isa, who start­ed his appren­tice­ship in June 2020 said;

It was great to be nom­i­nat­ed and to win a sil­ver award. I am real­ly enjoy­ing my appren­tice­ship and get­ting stuck into work­ing on the ward. I have learned so much over the past year and look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing my stud­ies along­side working.
