We’re saying a huge thank you to all our levy gifting employers this December for gifting £1.2m of life changing funds this year. 

We spoke to Molly Rigby, an apprentice Dental Nurse on a City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing (QCF), who has been able to train thanks to a gift of unused levy funds from facilities management company Apleona

Why did you choose to do your apprenticeship?

"I wanted to challenge myself with something completely new.

This apprenticeship has allowed me to work hands-on while gaining a qualification and I've loved it! 

What new skills have you gained during your apprenticeship? 

"I’ve gained so many! My top three would be confidence as I felt like this was something I was lacking, communication skills as my role is patient facing and working with a lot of team members - this is a skill I have developed in a lot. 

"The main one would have to be organisation skills. It can be a lot working full-time as well as fitting in the learning alongside it but I was motivated to learn the theory behind the practice because I enjoyed it so much. 

How has levy gifted enabled you to benefit from learning and training?

"It has benefited me completely! Before my apprenticeship, I felt lost doing a degree and I didn’t feel right.

This apprenticeship has opened so many future pathways for me that I’m excited to explore.

What message do you have for Apleona who gifted their levy funds for your training?

"I would like to thank them. I am so grateful I was given the opportunity to do an apprenticeship and gain my qualification as a Dental Nurse."
