We work in partnership with the trust to provide bespoke Apprenticeship programmes. One of the primary aims is to increase the number of young people working at the trust.

We’ve developed a mix of frameworks tailored to the needs of the trust, these include: business administration, customer service and IT.

Sharon Carter, Apprenticeship co-ordinator at the Trust said,

“We use Apprenticeships to support improvements in productivity and drive up the quality of patient care. Apprenticeships increase the number of young people in the workforce and because they are developed in line with our methods and practices, provides the Trust with fresh, creative ideas.

“Apprenticeships have also helped the Trust address the commonly held view that taking on young people, new to the world of work, is risky. Hosting an apprentice has given departments a chance to reduce the barriers and stereotypes around recruiting young people.

“Our future plans include expanding the Apprenticeship programme, which currently holds between 75 and 100 students on program at any one time, across the trust to create pools of talented individuals with the right skills and experience that can be recruited by departments as positions become available.”
