Apprenticeships are a key way for people to learn on the job, both for new starters to the NHS and for existing members of staff. It gives learners/staff the opportunity to gain a qualification and apply their learning while continuing to earn a salary, whether they are an apprentice joining the Trust for the first time on an apprentice salary or a member of staff completing an Apprenticeship Education Programme for their career development.
An apprentice will do an average of 20% of their learning off the job over the term of their apprenticeship. This doesn’t necessarily mean attending classroom sessions.
UHL has its own internal Apprenticeship and Development Centre which offers a choice of Apprenticeship Education Programmes which embrace a wide range of occupational roles and levels. We regularly liaise with awarding organisations and other external delivery partners to ensure our programmes are designed to develop a skilled workforce capable of meeting the challenges currently being faced in the Trust.
