Some Essex based Student AAP"s have raised concerns that they will not have completed all of the elements to enable them to qualify at week 15 due to unrealistic time pressures.
The initial Clinical and Driver Training is 18 weeks after which they have 34 weeks in which to take all of their Annual Leave Allowance, do 750 shift hours with a qualified EMT or Paramedic and complete a Portfolio that has already undergone several I changes leaving some confused and unsure as to what is required.
in some cases, several months after training, Student AAP's still do not have Mentors or have only just been allocated Mentors
if you are one if those affected and feel you need further support please let me know by emailing me at the following address
