MediPro celebrate National Apprenticeship Week
We have been celebrating National Apprenticeship Week this past week, giving an opportunity to shine a light on the positive impact apprenticeships have on individuals, businesses, and the wider economy.
Apprenticeships are at the heart of our business. MediPro is the largest independent ambulance apprenticeship provider in the UK, delivering courses to over 1,300 apprentices – from Stockton and London to Bristol and East of England.
Interview with an Apprentice
As part of National Apprenticeship Week, we have a short interview with Emily Hanley, our apprentice HR administrator, about her experiences at MediPro.
“I left my previous job because I wanted something with more of a career choice and I stumbled upon the Northern Skills Group apprenticeship website, and they said that with my degree in Health Psychology, it would line up really well with a health company. Then I came across MediPro. “
“Because I am doing a Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship at the moment, it gives me a lot of the core values of a workplace that I’ve never been in before.”
“The programme helps me understand some of the core skills with IT that I wasn’t very familiar with. Getting to know my role in the business and how that affects the business as a whole.”
“I have short-term and long-term projects, along with my day-to-day tasks, so filing, make sure everyone is accounted for in terms of compliance and quality assurance, disciplinary, sickness absences.”
“In terms of long-term projects, it’s working on presentation for staff and students about policies and legislation, leaflets and handouts for staff and students, that kind of thing.”
“Some days it’s more computer based, some days it’s just studying and getting to know policies and legislation more. Sometimes it’s going over to Faraday to get to know staff and students so that I’m familiar with names and faces. Some days are quite steady, just researching, reading, and getting to know a lot of the core law elements, like employment law.
“It’s very supportive, and they are more than willing to hear you out when you have problems or concerns, or even just your own opinion. I’ve been told by Brian himself, the managing director, that I’m not just an apprentice. He sees me as my own person. As someone who has the skills that help this company run, so I’m not overlooked. I’m appreciated and that’s a really nice feeling!”
MediPro attend first Jobs Fair of 2022
As part of National Apprenticeship Week, we visited an apprenticeship jobs fair in Consett, County Durham. The fair was hosted by Richard Holden MP at Derwentside College.
The fair was visited by the Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills, Alex Burghart MP.
The fair saw apprenticeships on offer from dozens of different professional backgrounds, from accounting and administration, to fire and rescue and the NHS.
Richard Holden’s Jobs Jobs Jobs fair in September attracted more than 400 people, with dozens of companies recruiting and scores of people getting jobs in the weeks that followed.
To round off our National Apprenticeship Week coverage, here are some lovely compliments for one of our apprentice cohorts of trainee emergency ambulance crews (TEACs) – well done everyone!

We hope everyone will make them feel welcome!
This month, we received some lovely compliments about Joanne White and Jenny-Lee Clifford. Here is what the patients’ daughter wrote about them.
“We had two ladies come to take my mum to hospital. At the time we weren’t aware that mum had sepsis. The very last thing we wanted was for her to go to hospital.”
“The paramedics that came took their time to explain to my 82 year old dad what was going to happen and why, which put him at ease. They allowed me to go with mum as she was so poorly.”
“The ladies were fantastic, and we cannot tell you how grateful we were for their care. Mum is doing ok and we have just found out she has a break in her spine as well as the infection. The care they gave us was above and beyond and we can’t thank them enough”.
Well done Joanne and Jenny-Lee!
