Tasmin Jackson, then Apprentice Health Care Assistant at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, collecting her Most Accomplished Learner Award from Chief Executive, Louise Barnett at the PROUD Awards 2015.
This National Apprentice Week we are sharing some of the fantastic achievements of our apprentices at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust!
Tasmin Jackson, now Health Care Assistant in the Outpatients Department at Rotherham Hospital, successfully completed a one year Health Care Apprenticeship with the Trust and was selected as the winner of the Most Accomplished Learner Award at the Trust’s 2015 PROUD Awards.
The Trust encourages all colleagues to be engaged, accountable and to develop to be the best they can be.
Our Most Accomplished Learner Award is given to an individual who has demonstrated exceptional results from the learning they have undertaken. This learning could have taken place in a range of formal and informal settings and may include gaining new qualifications or on the job learning, resulting in exceptional outcomes for the Trust, colleagues and our patients.
Tasmin was nominated for this award not only for her completion of an apprenticeship and a level 2 clinical diploma at the Trust, but also for her positive and professional approach to learning and working at the Trust.
Tasmin’s nominator said: “Tasmin has worked quietly and confidently on her Care Certificate and all components of the apprenticeship framework, including her level 2 clinical diploma. Tasmin is definitely a team player and is always willing to assist colleagues with tasks, something she always does with a smile. Despite her young age and just one year of experience of working in the health care sector, Tasmin already demonstrates a mature approach to her work plus a high level of professionalism.”
Nicki Renzi, Nursing Services Manager for Patient Access at the Trust, congratulated Tasmin on winning this award. She said: “Congratulations Tas; well done! I’m absolutely delighted for you, you’ve been an amazing apprentice and you have taken this really to your heart and proven that you are a true patient advocate.
“It’s amazing to see how you have blossomed and have now become a health care worker which your colleagues hold in such high esteem. Congratulations.”
Tasmin said: “It was such a brilliant achievement winning the 'Most accomplished Learner' award. I am truly thankful to my manager and fellow workers for encouraging me and supporting me through my time as an apprentice.
“I am now a member of staff and couldn't be happier.” #TRFTProud
