HOW TO GET INVOLVED

In Partnership with the Princes Trust

We are really proud to have formed a partnership with the Prince’s Trust, the Prince’s Trust are a charity who help young people aged 18-30 into employment.

We will be working with the Prince’s Trust over the next 2 years to help try and support a large number of young people to become work ready.

The roles that we will be recruiting into are as follows:

  • Apprentice Emergency Care Assistant
  • Ambulance Care Assistant
  • Emergency Care Assistant

If you are aged between 18 – 30 and perhaps still need to achieve your GCSE’s, driving licence or C1 then the Prince’s Trust will be able to help you with this – we can put you in contact with the Prince’s Trust directly and offer you the help and support required to secure a role with us.

We are pleased to advise that we do offer work experience placements for students aged 16+, at the moment these placements are only available from our Education Simulation Centre based in Newbury, Berkshire.

The placement that we have designed showcases the Educational training elements that our staff undergo during their career with us and the technology we use to support this.

We currently offer a week placement this is normally from Monday to Friday and working hours are usually 09.00 – 17.00.
