Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing Apprenticeship

“After completing my A-levels I decided that going to university wasn’t for me. I worked in various admin roles, but felt very limited as to where I could progress. Doing an apprenticeship will open up more opportunities for me and help me develop a career, rather than just a job.”

Dr Harish Ashley Purmah, Principal Dentist at Angel Dental Clinic commented said: “Iqra is providing support in a range of dental treatments at the clinic and is constantly developing new skills. She has fitted in to the team really well and has a great rapport with the customers.”

He added: “Apprenticeships are a great way of finding and nurturing new talent to create a strong workforce. It also helped that the college team we worked with has a lot of experience in the industry between them and already understood what we required in a potential candidate. “They did all the initial interviews and assessments which saved me a lot of time and meant that I could focus on running my practice.”
