From a previous AHRG trainee:
“The pathway’s been incredible, it has allowed us to top up our knowledge and feel a little bit more empowered about the quality of the service we are delivering… it’s hugely boosted our confidence. The workplace training grants has been an incredible permission slip to undergo professional development in feeding, and accessing a mentor, which has supported me hugely in my practice, and contributed to our service development project Additionally, I have been able to access SARRAH short courses in project development, which has been incredibly helpful as someone who has only trained as a clinician”
From a previous organisation
“The pathway has given our four level 2 trainees terrific skills at their early career stage. They have liked the modules and other opportunities - early project planning, writing a business case, presentations - and have developed a lot of skills they didn’t anticipate when they first started.”
Applications close on 7 January 2022
