Jes­si­ca — part-time Lev­el 3 Den­tal Technology

Jessica S Working In Dental Technology Lab

I’d absolute­ly rec­om­mend this course as a route into industry. 

Jes­si­ca — 

29-year-old Jes­si­ca is a Den­tal Lab­o­ra­to­ry Assis­tant. She’s on the part-time Lev­el 3 Den­tal Tech­nol­o­gy course as part of a train­ing scheme through her employer.

Why she chose the course

Jes­si­ca said: I had already fin­ished a degree course, but wasn’t sure what I want­ed to do next. I decid­ed that I want­ed to go back and change career back to science.

It was hard to do that with­out hav­ing a spe­cif­ic qual­i­fi­ca­tion, so doing it this way (work­ing and study­ing at the same time) was real­ly good.”

Why she recommends the part-time Dental Technology course

Jes­si­ca said: I’d absolute­ly rec­om­mend this course as a route into the industry. 

That’s because it’s quite a spe­cif­ic qual­i­fi­ca­tion and it’s voca­tion­al, prac­ti­cal and career-relat­ed. You get hands-on, prac­tis­ing indus­try-spe­cif­ic trans­fer­able skills.

When I fin­ish the course, I’ll become a qual­i­fied den­tal technician.

I will be able to reg­is­ter with the Gen­er­al Den­tal Coun­cil (GDC), which is the pro­fes­sion­al body for the industry.” 

Learning lots of skills and collaborating

Jes­si­ca likes the fact that she learns a range of skills on the course. 

She also works with stu­dents from dif­fer­ent workplaces.

Jes­si­ca said: It’s use­ful to come here to be with peo­ple who are in dif­fer­ent lab­o­ra­to­ries and be able to skill share.”
