Jessica Price – Level 3 Team Leader – Moorfields Eye HospitalOn December 14, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
[Music] Hi I’m Jessica price and I’m currently doing the Level 3 Team Leader and supervisor apprenticeship. I’m working towards a new role in full-time management of permanent staff and I currently manage volunteers so I had noticed gaps and in my knowledge and experience so I knew that I had to somehow fill those gaps and the apprenticeship program came along and it was perfect because I’m learning as I work and I’m able to apply what I’m learning to my current practice to fill the gaps. Perfectly there are some things that I find that I can’t apply to practice at the moment but it’s given me a really good insight as to what I’m going to do when I then manage permanent staff, but techniques I’m picking up from the workshops I’m then able to apply to my current practice so it’s actually making my life a lot easier at work. The structure of the program is very simple and you’re notified of all the different workshops initially when you start the program so you can accommodate that with anything that you’re doing within work and just work around that. I like to plan ahead personally so that has been key for me. [Music] For me I work well when I’m practically doing something so being able to apply the knowledge straightaway into my job is perfect because I’m not going to forget anything and so that’s been key for me I don’t really learn well if it’s just classroom black based and I can’t then take that teaching and apply it into my daily practice and I’ve been able to do do that so that’s been great.
