Apprenticeships With Us
We are delighted to work with Somerset Skills and Learning to offer opportunities for an apprenticeship. Somerset Skills & Learning has supported Frome Medical Centre with the recruitment and training of apprentices for over 3 years now. During this time, six apprentices have been recruited and supported in roles ranging from finance assistants to care navigators. As a key community resource, the Medical Centre has invested in future talent; offering progression and opportunity for apprentices to both progress within the organisation and to develop into other areas. As Frome’s apprenticeship provider, SS&L is looking forward to continue working with Frome Medical Centre as we support them to grow their own future talent.
We aim to provide opportunities to learn a range of skills including Care Navigation, processing repeat prescriptions, finance and HR.
If you would be interested in becoming our next apprentice please contact our HR department and we will put you in touch with the Somerset Skills and Learning team. We can let you know when we may have opportunities available.
Here is what our apprentices have to say about working at Frome Medical Practice:
"I completed the Business Administration Level 2 whilst working at Frome Medical Practice as an apprentice in the Patient Services Team. I gained experience and understanding in a wide range of areas, including communication styles, equality and diverstiy, processing information about customers, producing business documents, human resources and health and safety in a business environment. Both Frome Medical Practice and Somerset Skills and Learning were very supportive throughout. It is a great pathway to gain work experience and prepare for further studies and I would highly recommend it to others." Verity Lawrence, Apprentice, 2018/19
"Doing an apprenticeship at Frome Medical Practice helped me learn all the essential skills that are needed to work in a busy office environment and it really helped me grow in confidence. I started of as a care navigator but also helped out in the prescriptions team which allowed me to learn a variety of different communication skills. My apprenticeship gave me the ability to work independently as well as part of a team, meaning I had to learn to use my own initiative. Towards the end of my apprenticeship I had the opportunity to join the finance team. This gave me the experience I needed to successfully move into a Finance administrator role within the Practice. I loved both my roles as a care navigator and a prescription clerk but my role in finance was where I discovered my true vocation. The experience I gained in Frome really laid the foundations for me to step onto my chosen career path and has encouraged me to step forward and start my training towards being an accountant. I have now moved on to work at C & J Clark International where I have started studying for my AAT exams. Even though I have moved on, I am glad I took the position as an apprentice at Frome because I was able to gain some great experience alongside a qualification in business and administration."
