Unsung heroes from the NHS have had their achievements recognised in a special awards ceremony after completing a work-based qualification at New College Lanarkshire.

Administrative and support staff from NHS Lanarkshire attended the celebratory event at the College’s Motherwell Campus after completing the SVQ Business and Administration Level 2 and 3 qualifications delivered through a partnership between the College and NHS Lanarkshire.

Of the 20 successful candidates, 11 who were able to attend were presented their awards by Sandra Reid, Curriculum and Quality for Business, Housing and Management and Rod Harris, Lecturer within the Faculty of Business, Social Science and Sport.

A vote of thanks was given by Kirsty Cole, Organisational Development Manager and Agnes Robb, Learning and Development Manager from NHS Lanarkshire.

The event also allowed the students to be provided with further work-based opportunities within the College, including progression to the HNC in Administration and IT or HNC in Management.
