Health and social care charity Sue Ryder Cuerden Hall in Bamber Bridge, near Preston, held a celebration event to recognise the achievement of three young apprentices.
Chloe Jones, Gemma Gagan and Megan Davies successfully secured a job at the centre following completion of their year-long apprenticeship.
The charity has been working closely with Runshaw College to offer quality work placements through an apprentice scheme to young people interested in developing their skills.
The scheme offers the opportunity to learn new skills in a work environment while studying for a level 2 health and social care qualification.
Jayne McGurran, practice development lead with Sue Ryder, said: “These young people are the workforce of the future and we have the responsibility to give them the chance to learn while they’re working.”
