This week is National Apprenticeship Week.
Throughout the week, we are celebrating the value and importance of apprentices at Baywater Healthcare.
Apprenticeships combine on-the-job training that allows individuals to learn skills, along with a comprehensive academic programme. We have actively recruited apprentices for over six years, offering a wide range of disciplines available for our colleagues to enhance their skills and knowledge.
When we offer apprenticeships to individuals, we are committed to providing them with training and real life situations to demonstrate those skills in the workplace. We are also proud to engage in the new T-Level qualification, offering 45 days relevant work experience for 16-18 year olds to complement their in-college learning.
Apprenticeships don’t have to be aimed at just school and college leavers. We utilise the apprenticeship levy to inspire, motivate and allow our employees of all ages to upskill. We currently have 33 colleagues undertaking an apprenticeship. The skills and qualifications our staff gain give them opportunities to develop further within their roles and the company.
“In such a rapidly evolving world, there are always opportunities for our people to learn new skills. More employees are being trained and coached, receiving qualifications in disciplines that even a few years ago did not exist. In many cases it has resulted in some very diverse choices allowing individuals to take a completely different career route compared to the role they were originally recruited in to. This has proven to be really motivational and we are seeing people flourish, with a real willingness to take on new challenges.”
Adam Sullivan, CEO, Baywater Healthcare
National Apprenticeship Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of apprentices and to encourage more individuals to upskill. Throughout the week, we will be sharing profiles of several Baywater Healthcare employees who have undertaken an apprenticeship. They will discuss the value of their apprenticeship, the skills they have learned, and much more.
