Angad Singh Flora completed the Student Paramedic programme in 2012 and now working as a Registered Paramedic for West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. Angad said: “The Student Paramedic training programme enabled me to fulfil my dream of becoming a Paramedic. I couldn’t afford to go to university so this option allowed me to learn brand new skills as well as earning a wage. I really feel as if I can now make a huge difference to my community. The support that I received from both the ambulance service and the university was fantastic!”
