A leading UK dental firm has confirmed that it will offer 25 apprenticeships in the North East over the next 18 months.

Genix Healthcare, an NHS service provider, will offer 25 apprenticeships in the North East in addition to 75 apprenticeships in the rest of the country.

Genix Healthcare has 22 practices in England and 5 in the North East. Representatives from the firm said that there was an urgent need for experienced dental nurses and they are offering training schemes for 100 dental nurses in the UK. Young nurses in the North East will be given the opportunity to train in practices in Middlesbrough, Whitley Bay, Alnwick and Skelton.

Genix Healthcare will invest around £250,000 in the training programme, which could last up to three years depending on the individual and will take them to a level 3 qualification in dental nursing.

Sian Nelson-Jones, clinical director of Genix, said that the company was aware of the difficult employment situation facing young people and it wanted to help young nurses out and give them the necessary training and support.
