Opportunities for employers and individuals
For an employee, an apprenticeship is a structured training programme that provides the opportunity to gain hands-on experience whilst working towards a qualification. It is a chance to earn whilst you learn and gives you a real chance to put your skills into practice to gain more confidence and ‘hit the ground running’.
For an employer, apprenticeship programmes are an excellent way to build a highly skilled and proactive workforce that is engaged and ready to take on the challenges the future can bring. There is no doubt that apprenticeship programmes can offer a unique way to attract in and retain the best talent around, alongside being a great recruitment tool.
Other business benefits
Apprenticeships can also offer many other business benefits: an improved service, reduction in recruitment and retention costs, enhance skills development of the workforce, increase in employee motivation and, probably most importantly, the opportunity to develop a high calibre of well-trained skilled staff, which will add value to any organisation.
Apprenticeship programmes at Horder Healthcare
At Horder Healthcare, we have a large variety of apprenticeship programmes running which can span from our clinical departments through to our non-clinical areas. These programmes cover a diverse range of skills and development, which range from entry-level all the way through to master's level and advanced practitioner level courses. Our staff are using the programmes and the opportunities that we can offer to upskill, to retrain and develop as individuals as well as bringing value to our organisation.
Commenting on National Apprenticeship Week, Michelle Gibbins said: “It really is an exciting time for both myself, in Education and Development at Horder, but also the business as a whole - to see what the future will bring on our really new apprenticeship journey.”
