You may be aware that the Trust is now part of the Apprenticeship Levy Scheme, which was introduced back in April 2017. The Trust is now able to access significant amounts of funding via the Apprenticeship Levy in order to offer apprenticeship study opportunities to our Support Services staff who are interested in learning and gaining a qualification which could help you develop within your role.
Since the launch of access to the Government Apprenticeship Levy funding we have seen a host of Trust staff commencing on apprenticeship courses. We now have many members of staff studying towards new qualifications. There are a wide range of courses, and for more information just open the courses tab and follow the links.
It is fantastic to see so many members of staff taking up this available funding and the upskilling within Support Services will bring benefits across the Trust with improvements in working practice and individual capability.
We want to be able to offer this opportunity to as many staff as possible. However, if we are inundated with interest, there will have to be a selection process of applications. Please do provide as much detail as possible within your form that will give you the best chance of being afforded this opportunity.
We believe that this is a fantastic opportunity for individuals to benefit from personally and also for the Trust to see the apprenticeship scheme being utilised for staff effectively and ultimately with a positive outcome for everyone.
