Anyone who watches Sam on the pitch can see that she is not afraid to head the ball and always puts her body on the line for the sake of the team. Sam excels in the classroom in her Nursing program and is a well-rounded student-athlete. Thank you to Sam for her dedication to the Wolves.

Carter’s work on and off the court has lead to big rewards in finding ways to adapt his strengths to the ACAC. Carter’s speed and ball control allow him to make important plays on reception and defense that set the base for the team’s offensive system. Thank you to Cater for his dedication to the Wolves.

Check out what Lee Wrigley, Practice Manager at South 40 Dental had to say about the program and its students.

“We have participated in the GPRC Dental Administration work placement program since 2014, and it has been instrumental in providing us insights into our own training program, as well as a great way to introduce students into a fast paced, technology-rich environment.

At times, we have taken on two students at once for their work placements, and our team loves being able to share their experience, as well as show them the level of customer care, and cohesive teamwork we strive to achieve everyday. Out of our placements over the years, we have hired four students out of this program, and of the two that are still currently working with us, they are a valued part of our admin team. The training that they received with the GPRC Office Administration program better prepared them for their work placement with us, and was a very valuable time saver with regards to the students already having a lot of dental terminology and knowledge of the industry.  This is such a value to me, as we have a very large practice with five dentists and a team of 35 employees, so hiring someone from this program is almost always a sure bet that they will be able to perform at a level that suits our needs!

I would strongly recommend any administration managers to participate in this work placement program!”

So, what are you waiting for?

Apply today and start on your way to a career in one year.
