As an employer in the health and social care sector, taking on an apprentice is a great way to train new staff and for your organisation to benefit from an employee with the latest sector skills and knowledge.
The programme enables apprentices to combine on-the-job training working alongside existing staff in the workplace with studying for occupational standards set by employers and learning from experienced college tutors who have worked in the sector themselves.
Whether you’re a GP in a busy medical practice, the owner of an independent care home, a manager in an NHS setting, or a company providing domicilliary care, apprenticeship training will enable your employees to develop the skills and knowledge needed to meet the demands of the organisation and provide a high standard of care to patients and clients.
We offer apprenticeship training from beginner to advanced level – from level 2 adult care worker, through to a level 4 lead practitioner programme and level 5 leader in adult care apprenticeship – to ensure that staff at all levels in the organisation and equipped with the relevant skills they need.
Throughout their training, apprentices will be supported by college staff who will work closely with you to ensure that the skills they are learning are what is required by your business and that they will achieve their full potential and career aspirations, and meet your business needs.
The college has a dedicated recruitment team to support employers in appointing an apprentice – including advertising vacancies, screening applicants and shortlisting candidates for interview; and with a talent pool of enthusiastic young people waiting for a business apprenticeship you can be sure you’ll be employing the right person for the job!
And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? If you want to upskill and develop existing members of your team they can benefit from apprenticeship training too – email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the team will contact you to discuss your requirements further.
