Mammography Associate Apprenticeship Programme welcomes new Education Manager

We are delighted to welcome Amy Symons who has joined our breast screening team at the Jarvis Breast Centre as Education Manager. The Centre’s Education & Training Department offers Postgraduate Education and Training to clinical staff of all grades working within the specialist field of Breast Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment, and offers 3 programmes of study in collaboration with the Joint Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education – Kingston University and St George’s University of London.

Amy, previously Senior Lecturer in Diagnostic Radiography at Kingston and St George’s University, will provide valuable support to the new Mammography Associate Apprenticeship Programme at the Centre, which has been developed to support the delivery of the NHS Breast Screening Programme in England and address the shortage of healthcare specialists in the field of radiology, including mammography. This new higher apprenticeship will be available for mammography associates who work within a multi-disciplinary team as part of breast screening programmes, helping to meet the skills gap and providing enhanced career progression. The qualification will be delivered over a 12 to 18-month period using a flexible delivery approach.
