Medical practices across Burnley have been recruting apprentices from Burnley College's Themis.

Themis at Burnley College has been working closely with medical practices to recruit Business Administration apprentices they need to move forward.

One such practice is Prestige Medical Group, Parkside, Burnley, which now has six Themis Advanced Business Administration apprentices, all with additional qualifications they gained through a specialist online medical terminology course.

Director of Themis Neil Burrows said: “Themis is constantly forecasting and reacting to the needs of diverse sectors and we are proud to be playing our part in helping the healthcare sector develop its workforce and make plans to come out of Covid-19 stronger and more resilient through the recruitment of our apprentices.

“In recent months we have been in prime position to help GP surgeries recruit the highly-skilled, committed and motivated business administration staff they need to ensure they have the processes in place, the efficiency and the confidence to safeguard the community’s health during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We have supported them to recruit exceptional Business Administration apprentices who have fitted seamlessly into their existing teams and really made a difference. And, as news of the success of our Themis apprentices has spread within this sector, more and more GP surgeries have been approaching us to find their next Themis apprentice.”

Thursby Surgery and Briercliffe Surgery, in Burnley, are two other practices which are now benefitting from the additional skills and knowledge of Themis apprentices.

Rebecca Lord, Thursby Surgery practice manager, thanked Themis for their speed in providing her with two apprenticeship candidates for a recent position – and was so impressed by the calibre she offered both positions as a result – and is hoping to recruit more in future.

Neil Burrows added: “We know that these medical practices will nurture and develop these amazing Themis apprentices still further, alongside the expert training they receive from Themis, and we are looking forward to seeing them progress in their careers and take on the leadership roles for which they are destined.”
