Careers in the fast-growing industry of dental health are now ‘open wide’ to those aged 16 and over at Bedford College.
Dental Nursing Advanced Apprenticeships are on offer for those aged 16+ during which time they will achieve a Diploma in Dental Nursing and be working in a real surgery.
For those who perhaps need a year in College full-time to gain confidence before stepping out into the world of work, there is an Intermediate course leading to a City & Guilds qualification which will include work experience in dental practices.
Bedford College Director Karen Campbell said:
I have long wanted to see this training made available to young people and to help the industry which is crying out for new technical talent. This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone in Bedfordshire to support one of the fastest growing personal and medical services.
