National Apprenticeship Week 2020 Health

National Apprenticeship Week 2020 Health

National Apprenticeship Week was an annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships across England and was a time to recognise and applaud apprenticeship success stories across the country.

Apprenticeship employers used the opportunity to promote the success of their apprentices and highlight the huge benefits to other employers, of all sizes, who are thinking of taking on an apprentice.

Apprentices across the country were celebrated throughout the week, with engagement and events in schools and colleges. We met many current and former apprentices to tell their story and attract the next generation of apprentices, so they too can fire up their future career.

Watch Health Apprenticeship Interviews On Demand

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, allowing learners the opportunity to gain a qualification and apply their learning while continuing to earn a salary.

Specifically, HEE has been mandated to contribute to the development of apprenticeship standards in health, and is currently working with colleagues at the Institute for Apprenticeships and Skills for Health, as well as Trailblazer Chairs to make sure there are a wide range of standards from levels 2-7 available for employers and students to use.

  • Sam Curry

    Nursing Associate Apprentice, Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

    In 2015 I started work at my local hospital on reception in Outpatients.  A year into my employment I was offered a Healthcare Assistant role, as my sister in charge thought I would enjoy the role as I have a passion for helping others. Then in mid 2017 my Trust introduced the Nurse Associate Apprenticeship which had been introduced by the NMC. Myself and around 20 others had a days worth of interviews at UWL in Brentford and I was lucky enough to be picked a space on the course. I am now in year 2 and thoroughly enjoying it. It is really busy with essays and exams that need fitting in around work and family but i have a lot of support at home and so far so good!!

  • Imogen Le Brasse

    Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

    After completing my A levels in 2018, I still wished to continue with my studies but within a work environment, so I applied for an Apprenticeship Role at Ashford and St Peters and joined the Learning and Development team to undertake my NVQ level 4 in Business Administration. I have now been at the Trust for 18 months. My role involves booking Trust employees onto Mandatory and Statutory Training and updating their records accordingly. Whilst the studying been challenging at times, I have really enjoyed my time within the L&D department and hope to further my career at the Trust.​

  • Saara Nasir

    Team Administrator within the Children’s Community Nursing Service, Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

    My name is Saara Nasir and I currently work as a Team Administrator within the Children’s Community Nursing Service.  I’ve worked for the Trust for just over two years.  I was originally recruited as a Business Administration Apprentice.  During my first year of employment I completed my Level 2 Business Administration apprenticeship.  I chose an apprenticeship as I liked the idea of working and learning “on the job”.  I completed my apprenticeship with Lifetime Training which involved meeting with a Regional Trainer once every 6 weeks, completing on-line learning and putting my learning into practice in the workplace.   After finishing my apprenticeship I secured a permanent role as a Team Administrator answering phone calls, booking appointments, uploading patient notes and dealing with referrals to the service.  I will soon be starting my Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship.  Since starting my apprenticeship I have been supported by my mentor and I’ve have gained experience and confidence both personally and professionally.
