NHS Borders joined Borders College, Skills Development Scotland and Jobcentre Plus to celebrate the trainees who were successful in completing a four-week Train to Gain administration programme as part of the NHS Borders Sector Based Work Academy.
Train to Gain provides opportunities to help unemployed people in the region into work within the health sector by assisting participants to develop skills and build a better understanding and insight into working.
During the four weeks, seven participants also completed the NHS Borders Corporate Induction programme.
June Smyth, director of workforce and planning for NHS Borders, presented the certificates to the participants at a graduation ceremony at Borders College’s Hawick campus. She said: “This course provides a fantastic opportunity for a number of unemployed local people to develop the knowledge and skills required to successfully gain employment.”
