I’m not sure if you get many emails saying thank you, but I just wanted to say just that. 

I received my certificate for completing BSc Specialist Practice at UWE today. I’m thrilled and delighted. Moreover, I wanted to say ‘thank you’ because I wouldn’t have been able to afford to self-fund from being a Tech to Para FdSc to go on to complete the BSc. I’ve chipped away to top-up over the last 4-5 years by taking up the offer of various funded modules and fitted them around family life and shift work. (I’m not quite sure how I did it, but I did!)

I couldn’t have achieved what I have without all of this being funded by SWAST and for that I feel I’m very lucky to be working for an employer that makes it possible for that to happen. 

Thank you

SWAST Paramedic in North Division
