Hospice’s helpers

Telford College apprentices are playing a key role in supporting the day-to-day operations of the Severn Hospice. Latest recruits include Liss Evans from Wellington and Bradley Lowe from Bridgnorth, who are both earning while they are learning on Level 2 programmes.

Liss is on a business administration apprenticeship and is currently processing applications for people wishing to help out in shops. The former Abraham Darby student describes signing up on the volunteer services apprenticeship as “the best decision I’ve made”.

Fellow apprentice Bradley is on an ICT diploma course, providing support to hospices and shops in Shrewsbury and Telford. Prior to this, the 18-year-old was combining his studies with a part-time job at Sainsburys in Bridgnorth – which he said taught him how to communicate with the public and the importance of being a team member.

“I love learning on the job,” says Bradley. “It’s the best way to get practical experience. I did complete IT Level 2 and 3 at college before my apprenticeship but I didn’t get the hands-on experience I’m getting now – and the salary helps too!”
