Paramedic apprenticeship with University of Cumbria & SWASFT

The Trust has been working hard over the last 12 months to secure a suitable replacement programme for the DLP with UWE,  and we are happy to confirm the introduction of the paramedic degree apprenticeship into the Trust, in partnership with the University of Cumbria.

This programme will utilise the Trusts apprenticeship levy and will therefore cover the tuition fees of the programme.

Cost

As a formal Apprenticeship, the Apprenticeship programme will be fully funded through the Apprenticeship Levy.
However, as a pre-requisite for the Apprenticeship, the bridging course cannot be funded via the levy. This will be self-funded at the cost of £1500.

When

We anticipate the first cohort commencing the Apprenticeship programme in February 2021, with the bridging course expected to commence in the summer of 2020.
We anticipate recruitment to take place during late spring/early summer of 2020.

Further information

More detailed information can be found on the Working Wonders Aspire website.

The Cumbria University Apprenticeship program is administered via the HR Dept. directly.
