Tempdent Are Proud To Be Supporting National Apprenticeship Week 2017

The 10th National Apprenticeship Week starts today Monday 6th March and ends on Friday 10th March. This week will bring together employers and apprentices from across England to celebrate the success of apprenticeships over the last decade and will seek to encourage even more people to choose apprenticeships as a fast-track to a great career.

We are proud to showcase this important week and celebrate all our former and current apprentices. We also want to thank all our amazing assessors who work so hard to make apprenticeships enjoyable and for supporting all the apprentices who take part.

Ladder Of Opportunity

The theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2017 is ‘Ladder of Opportunity!’- focusing on the progression routes of apprenticeships, from traineeships through to higher and Degree apprenticeships. 

Sue Husband, Director of National Apprenticeship Service said:

"Apprentices are on the path to a great career with an apprenticeship; and for employers, apprenticeships bring opportunity: to attract new talent, to offer progression for current staff, and to develop a motivated and highly qualified workforce. With apprenticeships available in 1500 job roles and covering more than 170 industries – there has never been a better time to get involved in apprenticeships."

Stay Tuned!

This week we will put up interesting facts, quotes & posts all about apprenticeships on our blog, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram so be sure to follow us and share your stories with us.

To start things off we have asked Denisha who did an apprenticeship with us at Tempdent a few questions on why she thinks doing an apprenticeship is important and how she found it.

Q&A with former Tempdent Apprentice Denisha Morgan:

Tempdent: Tell us a little bit about yourself? Name, age, where you live?
Denisha Morgan: My name is Denisha, I’m 25 years old and I live in London.

TD: Growing up did you enjoy going to school?
DM: Yes I did enjoy school but found it very difficult. I went to sixth form to study an A Level in Health and Social Care then decided once completion of the course I didn't want to go into that sector.

TD: Did you always want to enter into a career in dentistry?
DM: No

TD: What appealed to you about becoming a dental apprentice?
DM: Whilst working as an estate agent for a few years i starting getting bored and something just came into my head about becoming a dental nurse.

TD: What has your experience of training with Tempdent been like?
DM: I enjoyed studying there my dental nursing apprenticeship, I found all the tutors very helpful and motivating.

TD: Did becoming an apprentice change your life significantly?
DM: Yes since then I've been working happily as a dental nurse and now I'm studying to become a hygienist

TD: What would you dream role within the dentistry profession be?
DM: Hygienist

TD: What would you say to people considering choosing a dental apprenticeship?
DM: I would definitely recommend it as you learn a lot from working 4 days in a practice and then a full day at college. I would also say to study at Tempdent because they will get all the help you need in order to pass the course as long as you are willing to put the hard work in.

  • Tempdent provided me with the most amazing help and support during my training. My assessor, Lynn really helped me through my course, she was very easy to approach. She had some brilliant tips and hits when it came to revising for my exams and I managed to qualify in just over a year which I do not think I could have done without such a great tutor. When I was really stuck on a project Lynn would make an arrangement for a support call where she broke down the project in a way I could understand what I had to do
